A father's untimely death, a gothic grandfather who falls in love with his son's beautiful widow, a mysterious girl, a rogue golfer, and the watchful eyes of two young people trying to overcome the quirky gravity of their own families — these are the unlikely elements in this lyrical, funny, romantic novel.
"He writes with such compassion, clarity, and humour that it is impossible not to become engrossed in the lives of his people. Cumyn is a consummate craftsman who has built a home you’ll move right into and leave only reluctantly."
"Between Families and the Sky […] is a captivating novel, the work of an insidiously good writer, one who seems to pull finely pitched sentences from clear air. […] It would be a failure to not treasure, praise, this book."
