Meeting the family.
It’s a simple event, really, but it’s the cause of about 14 tons of anxiety in every new relationship. Will his mother like you? Will your Significant Other’s father approve of your becoming the Other Half?
Would you fall in love with someone your family and friends didn’t like? In the new novel “Whiskey Road” (c.2008, Washington Square Press, $13.00 / $15.50 Canada, 277 pages) by Karen Siplin, Caleb falls for Jimi Anne, despite nearly an entire towns’ worth of disapproval.
