Island Bliss?

What could be more wonderful that traveling to Mallorca for a family vacation? The Post family from NYC has invited family friends to share in their island retreat. But is everything idyllic?

For Jim and Franny Post, this is a celebration of 35 years together but the couple are at odds over an recent event that has thrown their relationship off course. Franny, the planner of the bunch, is concerned with putting together meals and day trips to avoid the unspoken elephant in the room. Jim is questioning his choices and wondering where life will go from here.

The recent grad Sylvia is relieved to be out of the city and is looking forward to escaping to college. Bobby, the son who has relocated to Florida, brings his unpopular girlfriend to add fuel to the already simmering emotions.

On the surface, everything is fine. What lies beneath is the true tale.

Pick up The Vacationers for a contemplative read.
