Merrill Joan Gerber holds the record of having sold more short stories to Redbook magazine than any other writer. This selection of twenty-five linked tales, published in Redbook from 1964 to 1991, chronicles the passionate, domestic adventures of Janet, Danny, and their three daughters.
“Gerber’s stories have a synergistic advantage; they mean more gathered together than any of them would have alone. The collection is worthwhile because it is so unusual—because it allows the reader to see both how the characters and their creator have grown over time. It’s rare that we get to see so lasting, and focused, a relationship.” —Los Angeles Times
