A once tight family is not the same after an unexpected tragedy. The curveball life has thrown at them brings a weight of sadness to the family. Siblings find themselves with a new set of expectations, responsibilities, and a drastic change in their lives. The relationship between them is pushed to new boundaries. Envy, jealousy, rivalry, and fear work together, slowly trying to destroy what was once a happy nuclear family.
What happens when the patriarch of the family goes through a life-changing illness, putting even more stress on the siblings? Those left behind find themselves losing touch, growing apart, each processing the loss in their own way. Expectations change, misunderstandings accrue, and one sibling turns to deceit as the answer.
After each setback and adversity, Kaleigh finds herself leaning on an old friend. Trying to stay positive through it all, she finds herself needing him more, but jealousy has turned him away. Feeling trapped in her sorrow, will Kaleigh be able to pick up the pieces and find the strength to move on? Will the siblings be able to forgive each other? Will they have the chance to rebuild their relationship? Will they each find, their path to happiness?
Jennifer Deutsch is Reading Intervention Teacher who lives in upstate New York.
“I have a hard-working husband who supports all of my endeavors, and two beautiful children who are growing bigger by the day. I work to balance this thing we call life, and it is not always easy. I am constantly looking for easier ways to do things, ways to save time, and stay organized. I work with inner-city students who have so much resting on their shoulders but who deserve the same chance at becoming great readers and having amazing teachers as any other child in America. I work to show my students how many doors will open for them when they learn how to be great readers. I try to teach my students and my own children that good things come with time, dedication, and hard work.”
