“This is one beautiful book. I was wowed by Keane’s writing and narrative skill—and by what she knows about trouble.” —Stephen King

How much can a family forgive?

Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, rookie NYPD cops, are neighbors in the suburbs. What happens behind closed doors in both houses—the loneliness of Francis’s wife, Lena, and the instability of Brian’s wife, Anne, sets the stage for the explosive events to come.

In Mary Beth Keane's extraordinary novel, a lifelong friendship and love blossoms between Kate Gleeson and Peter Stanhope, born six months apart. One shocking night their loyalties are divided, and their bond will be tested again and again over the next thirty years. Heartbreaking and redemptive, Ask Again, Yes is a gorgeous and generous portrait of the daily intimacies of marriage and the power of forgiveness.

    A book about life , family and friends. Loneliness and hope.
  • Boring

    By Mind_the_Gap Nobody Died
    It just goes on, and on...and on. Just when I think it’s going to get exciting it becomes boring again. I think Jimmy Fallon is the only reason why anyone decided to read it.

    Loved this book! Every character was believable. The span of time worked very well. This book tugs at your heart and keeps you engaged from start to finish.

    For me it was depressing. It did end with hope.
