    "A gem of a book." —Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

    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.

      I really liked this book. The characters were well developed and likable. The plot was believable and complex enough to keep my interest in how the story would resolve itself. I felt it was well thought out and very satisfying. I would read another book by this author.

      Kept reading it, and when the iPad needed charging I kept reading in the phone, made my coffee while reading….. I was hooked

      This story was immediately engaging, and accurately highlighted struggles in life including mental illness, alcoholism, devotion, and forgiveness. I am really looking forward to Keane’s next novel. She is a brilliant writer.

      Completely accurate character development@KelleyLiz

      The author understood what is like to be family member of someone in law-enforcement. There were times that I felt I was reading about my own life and identified with Kate so much. The author also understood mental health issues. This was an excellent read but a bit emotional. I was grateful that she ended it in the positive because as many difficulties as we have in our lives, we can look back and realize difficulties don’t change who we are.

      The prologue brought me into this book because that was interesting but the rest of the book did drag on and on. The message that the book gives is great. Forgiveness. Growth. I believe there should have been more memorable moments in the book. Memorable moments is what this book is lacking.

      Boring@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.
