Keeping It Inn

Functionally dysfunctional families start with well-intended choices and usually lead to unraveling consequences. When Nancy dies at ninety-three, she stumbles on the chance to explain her six decades as a mother of seven, wife and innkeeper. Nancy and her husband Reg leap from suburban Connecticut to rural New Hampshire to become innkeepers without a speck of experience. Running a ramshackle Inn deepens their love and keeps them busy enough to hold their sorrows at bay. As Nancy’s life tour continues, she reconsiders her choices and the unmistakable evidence that tending our hearts is necessary. When dementia consumes her, she maintains her conviction, humor and sass as she shares a bit more wisdom about family connection, lasting love and the need to adapt right to the final exit ramp.
