The Wright family is in ruins.
Sue Ellen Wright has what she thinks is a close-to-perfect life. A terrific job as a Classics professor, a loving husband, and a son who is just about to safely leave the nest.
But then disaster strikes. She learns that her husband is cheating, and that her son has made a complete mess of his life. So, when the opportunity to take her family to a Greek island for a month presents itself, she jumps at the chance. This sunlit Aegean paradise, with its mountains and beaches is, after all, where she first fell in love with both a man and with an ancient culture. Perhaps Sue Ellen’s past will provide the key to her and her family’s salvation.
With his signature style of biting wit, hilarious characters, and deep emotion, Grant Ginder’s Honestly, We Meant Well is a funny, brilliant novel proving that with family, drama always comes with comedy.
The dysfunction jumps off of the pages with each turn in Grant Ginder’s, “Honestly, We Meant Well”; and it is deliciously raw and delightful.
From the moment we meet Sue Ellen Wright we are brought into an amazing mess! While she believes everything with her family is running smoothly, everything is truly like a house of dominoes that are falling.
When she accepts a job offer in Greece, we are taken on a dramatic and hilarious journey with the Wright family. Ginder knows Greece thoroughly, and brings it to life for us!
It’s truly a stunning island. I fell in love.
It’s a truly entertaining, vibrant and charismatic story.
I immediately bought all of Grant Ginder’s Novels! I cannot wait to read about his next family….
