Description - Hello From The Gillespies by Monica McInerney

For more than thirty years, Angela Gillespie has sent friends and family around the world an end-of-year letter titled 'Hello from the Gillespies'. It's always been cheery and full of good news. This year, Angela surprises herself - she tells the truth ...The Gillespies are far from the perfect family that Angela has made them out to be. Her husband seems to be having a mid-life crisis. Her grown-up twins are having career meltdowns. Her third daughter, badly in debt, can't stop crying. And her ten-year-old son spends more time talking to his imaginary friend than to real ones. Without Angela, the family would fall apart. But when Angela is taken from them in a most unexpected manner, the Gillespies pull together - and pull themselves together - in wonderfully surprising ways ...From the bestselling author of The House of Memories comes a funny and heartfelt novel about miscommunication and mayhem in a family like no other. Praise for Monica McInerney: 'McInerney's skills at creating family sagas keep getting better.' The Age 'This is one of those rare books you could recommend to anyone and know that they will love it.' Australian Women's Weekly 'If you need more proof what a superior storyteller this author is, here it is.' West Australian 'A satisfying family drama ...McInerney writes with a deep respect for her characters ...a book written with humor and charm.' Kirkus' 'With deeply developed characters who will capture the heart, a plot that knows just when to twist and a cathartic marriage between the two protagonists, McInerney's novel is worth every page.' Romantic Times 'With warmth, vivid characters, and a sharp eye toward observing twenty-first century life, Monica McInerney isn't just one of my favorite writers from down under, but from anywhere.' Sally Koslow, author of The Widow Waltz
