Summary
The idyllic life of empty nesters Ginny and William Owens is shattered when all three of their adult children suddenly return home to stay - indefinitely. First eldest daughter Lillian arrives with her two young children in tow her once happy marriage in tatters. Next comes younger brother Stephen and his fiercely ambitious BlackBerry-addicted and pregnant wife Jane who is forced to extend a grudging weekend visit into a month's-long bed rest after an emergency rdash to the local hospital. When their youngest Rachel appears fleeing her difficult life in New York Ginny and William find their once peaceful home transformed into the chaos of their child-rearing days. Only this time around their children are facing adult problems. At summer's end when a mother is faced with her worst fear each one has learned their own lesson in love and loyalty and what really matters. And the old adage once a parent always a parent has never rung so true
