Can two families learn to cohabitate?
In peace?

Are you terrified that you’ve turned into a version of the fairy-tale wicked stepparent?

Sounds like a good book. As a person who lives with her mother-in-law, hubby, and three older teens, and whose parents live with her sister, I'm sure I could relate to this!
