THE FAMILY PLAN
Old feelings flare to life when Jolyn returns to Blue Ridge after nine years. She's home to start a construction company, and the first job she takes is expanding longtime friend Chase's veterinary office. As the pair spends more time together, they think about the love they might have had if in high school Jolyn's best friend SherryAnne hadn't decided that she wanted Chase. Now they're divorced, and although SherryAnne left behind her daughter Mandy, she took with her the truth about Mandy's paternity. Cathy McDavid's The Family Plan (4) is a complex and beautifully detailed story about the assumptions people make.
