Summary
  • With sympathy, humor, and truth, Cathleen Schine explores the intrusion of old age into a large and loving family. They May Not Mean To, But They Do is a tender, sometimes hilarious, and radiantly compassionate look at three generations, all coming of age together
  • Joy Bergman is not slipping into old age with the quiet grace her children, Molly and Daniel, would prefer. She won't take their advice, and she won't take an antidepressant. The Bergman clan has always stuck together, growing as it incorporated in-laws, ex-in-laws, and same-sex spouses. When Joy's husband Aaron dies, Molly and Daniel have no shortage of solutions for their mother's loneliness and despair, but there is one challenge they did not count on: the reappearance of an ardent suitor from Joy's college days
Summary
Refusing to age quietly, take antidepressants or accept the inevitable loss of her longtime husband, Joy Bergman shocks her children when, after becoming a widow, she reconnects with a former flame from her college days, turning as willful and rebellious as the younger members of their family. By the author of The Three Weissmanns of Westport
