[Wattys 2015 Hidden Gem award winner!]

Their leader: dead.

Their family: broken.

Their future: status, uncertain.

When five disconnected cousins face the aftermath of a funeral, they must join forces to fix problems long-dormant in their family tree before their differences divide them.

But Esau's evading the cops. His girlfriend, Mirrin, is hiding from her errant father. Brother and sister Seven and Eden are locked in a battle of best musician. And Seven's young protégée, Corrin, is just trying to sidestep his family's reputation. 

When relationships, dreams, and reputations raise the stakes of conflict, each must define for themselves the true meaning of family.

@StoryofAshlyn The dedication and the Emily Dickinson poem, one of her later poems, are beautiful, intelligent choices for your opening and the choices define you. V.
