Love has kept Avola LeFebre and May Hammond together for over thirty years, but as far as Avola is concerned, the whole world has just gone crazy.
When one of the Keepsake Self Storage units becomes a mysterious crime scene, May’s son abruptly leaves town. But instead of Avola finally being able to share a home with May, the scheming Vera promptly horns her way in. And then the young, way too friendly paramedic Lisa moves in too!
Seems like there’s room under May’s roof for everyone but Avola—and then May seems set on gallivanting across the country in search of her son. With both of them looking at seventy in the rearview mirror, it’s too late to change, isn’t it?
Lambda Literary Review
Tornado-like whirlwind of emotion and chaos... What appears at first to be a crazy "Keystone Cops" type of madcap folly is deceiving. Slowly, the path winds back on itself to become a study in the human condition, and all the ways people seek or eschew healing. Banks has given us a deviously zany story... as the tale progresses, a new story is revealed about deep wounds of the psyche and the harm that can be done in living for appearances.
