Author Florence Osmundabout this book: "Family dynamics and family secrets are always intriguing, and make this book a page turner."

Thirty-one-year-old Marc Nussbaum has visions of enjoying the finer things in life after building a successful landscaping business with clientele from the affluent suburbs of Chicago—no dependents, no commitments outside of work, no worries. And he's found the perfect woman to enjoy it with him. But when his dysfunctional family members come to him when they're in trouble, he quickly loses sight of his own dreams and runs to their aid.

Falling victim to their helplessness, Marc devotes most of his time and life to rescuing his father, sister, and nephews from one catastrophe after another, losing his girlfriend in the process. Then, after painful soul-searching and late-night talks with the fetching tenant from downstairs, he must decide whether to continue saving them from their ill-fated lives, or save himself from entering into a life of self-sacrifice and missed opportunities.

Marc eventually realizes his purpose in life and how to achieve self-fulfillment—but the purpose in life that he discovers for himself isn't at all what he had previously envisioned.
