Family Gathering

(1979)
A novel by

 
 
Natalie Rome, timid and retiring, discovers that a new life at forty is not, after all, as difficult of achievement as she had feared. With new relations and a new home, she finds security and happiness. She also finds a stepdaughter as timid as herself and a stepson of exceptional charm; a mother-in-law in garden boots and ancient, formal hats who talks loudly and a great deal; and a father-in-law who seldom talks at all.
Into this assembly comes Natalie's own daughter Helen; young, beautiful, successful and supremely confident. Helen and her new stepbrother enter at once into the age-old struggle between the woman who likes to organize other people's lives, and the man who prefers to arrange his own.
