Patriarch Peter Briscoe has six adult children by three different women. Long suffering wife June finds herself playing the matriarch role to the offspring who are not her own.

Events unfold for this extended family – a tragedy tests their faith, relationships, and trust in one another. This compelling read has rich character development and is a humorous yet sad story reflecting on family love and loyalty.
