Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane
Genre/Categories: Contemporary Fiction, Complicated Family Drama, Friendship
In 2020, I decided to systematically revisit my older review posts and update them. On Thursdays, I’ll be re-sharing a few of these great reads. Today, I’m re-sharing a review of a complicated family drama, Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane.
I’m linking up today with Davida @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog for #throwbackthursday.

“Beautifully written, Ask Again, Yes introduces us to two families who live next door to each other. Behind closed doors, the families deal with complicated issues. Meanwhile, two of their children, born six months apart, grow up as each other’s constant and best playmate and develop a deep friendship as they hang out after school. Just as Kate and Peter grow old enough to discover they might be attracted to each other, a tragic event happens that changes everything for the two families. One family moves away and the children’s friendship is torn apart.
The remainder of the story involves the children, who are now grown, coming to terms with what happened and figuring out what this means for their relationship, their families, and their future.”
Big themes of regret, forgiveness, reconciliation, healing, second chances, growth, and redemption…..
