Angie Righetti is the daughter of a sprawling but close-knit Italian American family. She's out and they're proud. Jillian Clark's family is the white bread to Angie's olive oil. Stoic and emotionally buttoned up, they don't want to think about Jillian's sexuality. It's 1988 when they move in together, on the brink of starting their careers. Like every couple at the start of their life together, they expect to live happily ever after. And for 23 years life happens.

While I usually prefer reading books, it was fun listening to this one while traveling. The narrator was excellent. The story was also excellent. Very nice to follow a couple through the ups and downs of a many year relationship, and it all rang true. You will probably see your own relationship, or others you know, in the story of this relationship.
