About

Overview

The inimitable — some might say incorrigible — Frank Widdicombe is suffering from a deep depression. Or so his wife, Carol, believes. But Carol is convinced that their new island home, Willowbrook Manor on the Puget Sound, is just the thing to cheer her husband up. And so begins a whirlwind summer as their house becomes the epicenter of multiple social dramas involving the family, their friends, and a host of new acquaintances. From a bright new voice in contemporary fiction comes a hilarious and sophisticated comedy of manners about a delightfully eccentric family and what befalls them during one frenzied summer at home in the Pacific Northwest.
