Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane, review by Robin Templin
Families, best friends, neighbors, fierce love and dark secrets. Ask Again, Yes is about the truths we do not talk about with those we love. Avalanches held at bay by mere denial. The slow erosion of relationships when we choose to dance around a problem instead of confronting it. We've all been there, hoping an unraveling seam will somehow magically repair itself. This is a lovingly told story of good people. There are no bad guys here. Just your average flawed humans, holding hands while trudging through the muck of life, love, addiction, obsession, and loyalty. You will love them all. You will stay up at least one night, to see them through the journey. And you will hold them in your heart long after you close the book.
