Henry has written a story that subtly describes the dynamics of a marriage. Told from the point-of-view of Eve Morrison; it involves a sullen teenage daughter, a recovering alcoholic sister, wealthy in-laws, a car accident, some untruths, and a search for what is correct.

The story flowed really well, without feeling forced. The relationships and the dialogue between the characters are well observed and believable.
