As Robin's parents and siblings struggle to cope, the complex nature of their relationship is put to the ultimate test. Molly has always lived in Robin's shadow and her feelings for her have run the gamut, from love to resentment and back. The last time they spoke, they argued. But now there is so much more at stake. Molly's parents fold under the devastating circumstances, and her brother retreats into the cool reserve that is shattering his own family. It's up to Molly to make the tough decisions, and she soon makes discoveries that destroy some of her most cherished beliefs about the sister she thought she knew.
Once again New York Times best-selling author Barbara Delinsky brings us a masterful family portrait, filled with thought-provoking ideas about the nature of life itself, how emotions affect the decisions we make, and how letting go can be the hardest thing to do and the greatest expression of love all at the same time.

This book is a realistic way to help people deal with tragedy and the death of a love one. It can help encourage people to deal with family issues, and learn to love people and forgive them.
I listen to lots of audiobooks so this book isn't even near the top of the list but probably in the top half.
The family dynamics during a tragedy were interesting. Having lost a child myself, I found the book unrealistic. The reality of what this family was going through would have been much more horrific than is portrayed in this book. It was definitely fiction.
Narration was ok. Not great but not bad.
