IN A FAMILY OF BLACK SHEEP, Mary is pure as the driven snow: patient and kind with her alcoholic grandmother and volatile mother, loyal and attentive to her spoiled cousin, and pleasant and polite all day as a grocery cashier. Her well-off aunt wants to help her more, but Mary’s mother is too prickly and proud.
A young couple moves into the apartment upstairs, sparking changes that lead to family revelations. Mary discovers that sometimes doing the wrong thing is exactly the right thing to do
Tender, authentic, and crackling with Lesley’s irrepressible humour—for anyone who’s ever had a family!
