Morgan Matson starts describing an average family that lives in city and is doing fine in the daily routine work. Bond of love between the members of the family is strong but the members don’t really have the time to express their feelings for one another.
Daily routine and the grind in office or institute make them so tired that they prefer not to indulge in a talk with each other. For Taylor Edwards it’s still a happy and contended life that she is passing with her family and no change is needed. Suddenly the parents get shocking news and it is decided that the family should spend sometime in the old house where they used to live half a decade ago.
No special enthusiasm is observed in the family for the summer that they are going to spend together after a longtime. But when the Edwards’ family reaches the place, old memories start appearing out of nowhere along with the people that they used to meet. Taylor gets a chance to meet her old boyfriend again who appeals her more than before.
As the time passes the whole family realizes that it really needed the unity that the small place has provided them after many years. Brittany Pressley changes the mode in narration after the family shifts to the old house for the summer. The mode is livelier and closeness can be felt with the use of words that start to have feelings in them. Since You’ve Been Gone and The Unexpected Everything had this sort of characteristic in them. So it is not the first time Morgan has tried such a theme in the novel, only change is that here the family starts feeling the bond very quickly.
