This novel is an extraordinary look into the lives of a family whose father discovers he has Huntingtons disease . It is a horrific disease with no cure and it is a disease carried in the genes from family member to family member. What would you do if you were diagnosed with this as the main character Joe is? Then the terrible task of telling his children. This book does not wallow unnecessarily but shine a light on the disease and what happens to the person who has it. It also follows one daughter in particular Kate and her struggle to come to terms with it. Do read it we all need to know more about Huntingtons.
