Abstract:

For the past thirty-three years, Angela Gillespie has sent to friends and family around the world an end-of-the-year letter titled 'Hello from the Gillespies'. It's always been cheery and full of good news. This year, Angela surprises herself, she tells the truth. The Gillespies are far from the perfect family that Angela has made them out to be. Her husband is coping poorly with retirement. Her thirty-two-year-old twins are having career meltdowns. Her third daughter, badly in debt, can't stop crying. And her ten-year-old son spends more time talking to his imaginary friend than to real ones. Without Angela, the family would fall apart. But when Angela is taken from them in a most unexpected manner, the Gillespies pull together, and pull themselves together, in wonderfully surprising ways.
