Opinion

From Library Staff

Becky read this drama that follows two families over several generations. She didn't like how over-the-top some of the characters were, so she rated it 3 stars.

A book about two neighboring families and how their lives intersect over many decades. This deeply engrossing story is hard to set down.

This is a wonderful book, extremely well written with the universal themes of love and forgiveness in a great story of two neighboring families and their intertwined lives. I didn't want it to end.

The Gleesons and Stanhopes have a long history. Their children Kate Gleeson Peter Stanhope are inseparable friends throughout childhood until the fateful night their lives change forever. Equal parts family drama, coming of age tale and love story. Ask Again, Yes is the well-written, deep character study you have been waiting for this summer. Perfect for fans of Anne Tyler, Alice McDermott and Celeste Ng.
