Ask Again, Yes

 Ask Again, Yes

Author: Mary Beth Keane

Publisher: Scribner

Year: 2019


Synopsis: Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, rookie NYPD cops, are neighbors in the suburbs. What happens behind closed doors in both houses—the loneliness of Francis’s wife, Lena, and the instability of Brian’s wife, Anne, sets the stage for the explosive events to come.

A lifelong friendship and love blossoms between Kate Gleeson and Peter Stanhope, born six months apart. One shocking night their loyalties are divided, and their bond will be tested again and again over the next thirty years.

This is a rich family drama that spans several decades and tackles issues including mental illness, friendship, alcoholism, love, regret, forgiveness, and acceptance. You can’t help but become invested in their stories. This rich tapestry of complex of love and emotions. 

This is my book club’s pick for this month. I’m sure we’ll have a lively discussion about this book when we zoom at the end of the month.
