THE FAMILY MAN

Author(s): 
When her employer abandons his twin daughters, nanny Thea Gayle has no choice but to take them to their uncle, Logan McCall. Logan turned his back on the girls and broke his promise to care for them after his sister, their mother, died. The Family Man (2) hero is so paralyzed by grief and oblivious to the needs of those around him that it is hard to imagine why the excessively whimsical Thea would be attracted to him. Frequent Wizard of Oz symbolism fails to lighten the heavy tone of Melinda Curtis' story.
