Barb McIntyre

Author Barb McIntyreabout this book: I have always been interested in why people do what they do, and almost all of my books have been about ordinary people living their lives. This one spans 30-plus years and tells the stories of four generations of women. It focuses on relationships; how they begin, what makes them last, and how they can cause both joy and sadness. It's about love, friendship, fidelity, honesty, and keeping secrets.

All I had to begin with was the idea of a person breaking all of the Ten Commandments, whether that person would feel guilt, and for which ones. Somehow the story focused on the seventh. Then the other family members' lives followed which allowed death and old age to be explored as well. To be honest, finding out what my characters will do, and how things will turn out is often as much of a surprise to me as it is to my readers.

One reviewer stated that she enjoyed the irony, and the bits of wit and dry humor. Another enjoyed that the stories were told without judgement.
