The Legacy of LoveBook - 2001
Family Ties is a marvelous celebration of the love shared by families -- children, parents, grandparents, and everyone in between. In classic Wyse fashion, these stories tug at the heartstrings, make us laugh out loud, and remind us of our own families. From her wry observations on men, (The less you ask of a man, the less you get.) to the paradox of parenthood, (By the time your children are old enough so that you can stand them, they can't stand you.) Wyse concocts a delightful blend of humor and insight that parents, grandparents, and adult children will love. Part memoir and partly based on the stories of others, Family Ties looks at how families and family life changes, grows, and is enriched over time. Indulging readers in the hilarious and endearing qualities of children, Wyse also examines the relationships between spouses when divorced and remarried ex's try to forge a new friendship. She also includes stories about the delicate roles of in-laws and stepfamilies and concludes with her hallmark tales of the delights of grandparenthood. With the same kind of observational humor as Funny, You Don't Look Like a Grandmother, Family Ties reminds us that there are no relationships as important or as lasting as those within the family.
