Cards We Are Dealt

51ugryl5c6l._sy400_.jpgUs by David Nicholls is a 2014 novel about the Petersen family. Doug and Connie of Great Britain are about to embark on a grand tour of Europe with their 17-year-old son Alvie when Connie informs her husband that her future plans don’t include him.  What follows is a narrative in George’s voice which flips between past and present as he desperately tries to save his marriage.

This is an incredibly well-written story which is very true to life. Not only does it focus on marriage, but also on parenting. I laughed and cried and nodded my head throughout the novel finding much I could relate to. I highly recommend it.
