Its engaging stories and quirky characters come together to form an arresting emotional mosaic of survival. Georgia, a sixty-year-old professor of Musical theatre and Drama therapy, heads a colorful but complicated extended family in New York City during the latter half of 2001. Her Chelsea home is a haven for her ever-growing eclectic family of straight and gay friends, students, and neighbors who come and go at will.

Even-keeled, John, Georgia’s younger husband, and Val, their twenty-one year old aspiring videographer daughter, support Georgia’s need to create a safe space with rules and standards where there is never an abandoned soul. The newest arrivals to this loving household include: forty-year old Horace, a hapless poet desperate to gain acceptance from his dysfunctional family and achieve marriage with an unknown foreign girl he corresponds with via the Internet- nephew Nick, the eight-year-old son of her imperceptive brother and his deceitful, alcoholic wife- and Kasey, an intelligent, kind-hearted, terrified teenage runaway, whose dark secret threatens to destroy any chance for future happiness.

Musical theatre and New York historical references are sprinkled throughout this first novel that covers a variety of themes in serious, humorous and visual ways. The story and its characters are psychologically complex and the author addresses the importance of family systems, therapy and creative expression.
