Description

Living in Tribeca after September 11th, Sue Glassman discovers that she is pregnant with her third child and quickly makes a series of decisions:
--Sell the family's soot-filled Tribeca apartment.
--Accept her father-in-law's gift of a beach house in the Rockaways.
--Honor her mother-in-law's dying wish that she convert to Judaism.

The next year in the Glassmans' lives brings more change than they could have predicted. The Rockaways are in the midst of a great upheaval--populated by first responders and their families, the community is still trying to pick up the pieces of their lives in the aftermath of great tragedy. Then, one day, the 92-year-old former owner of the house show up to claim it for herself.

Returning to the same territory as her previous books, From Rockaway and Kiss Out , Jill Eisenstadt tells an irreverent, off-kilter tale of a family figuring out its next chapter.
