A NoveleBook - 2007
The impact of four-year-old Spencer's death has rocked the Carpenter family. For Lainie, the loss of her son is unbearable, and now both her marriage and her very sanity are threatened. Her guitar-obsessed, slacker brother Russell isn't doing very well either, and his own love relationship is rapidly coming undone. Then there's Bop, her fierce and crusty 80-year-old grandfather, who should have died long ago, felled by the family's inherited heart disease which is killing so many younger members. Instead, grandpa lives it up with women who are after his millions. When he falls in love with a retired stripper, their earthy romance touches each of the Carpenters' lives in unexpected ways.
