5 amazing books about family reunions! | Inkish Kingdoms

Every month has a different flavor! Every month we remember or commemorate a different cause or group of people. In June, we celebrated Pride Month. In March, we commemorated Women’s History Month, and in July is no different. 

Interestingly enough, in July we celebrate Family Reunion Month! – and yes, that is a thing… apparently – so this is a month to observe family or to look for a family reunion! Many people use this month to get together with their family in the new house and/or if they are moving, like a nice way to get together before going away!

So, for those that will not be able to do this just yet, we want to share a list of books about family reunions. Some of these books cover family reunions, even those that go wrong. So, what are some books that we can read about family reunions?

Family Reunion by Nancy Thayer

Eleanor Sunderland loves living on Nantucket. Yet this year she can’t help but feel a bit isolated because her family rarely visits her anymore, and when her money-driven children contact her is mainly to complain and to beg her to sell her beloved home. Eleanor decides her seventieth birthday may be the perfect occasion for a much-needed reunion. Ari, her granddaughter, ended an engagement and wants to do nothing with her parent’s snobbish expectations, so she moved to Eleanor’s house. As they get alone, they make shocking discoveries.

Sisters by Danielle Steel

Four sisters: Candy is an international supermodel who goes around the biggest cities! From Paris, New York, to Tokyo! Tammy is a TV producer who lives in and loves L.A.’s Hollywood Hills. Sabrina is an ambitious young lawyer, and Annie is an American artist in Florence, living for her art. Every year, they get together on the 4th of July. They go home to Connecticut for their family’s annual gathering. But before the holiday is over, tragedy strikes and their world is utterly changed.

The Art of Mending by Elizabeth Berg

It begins with the sudden revelation of astonishing secrets—secrets that have shaped the personalities and fates of three siblings and now threaten to tear them apart. Laura Bartone anticipates her annual family reunion in Minnesota with a mixture of excitement and wariness. Yet this year’s gathering will prove to be much more trying than either she or her siblings imagined.

We Have Always Lived in The Castle by Shirley Jackson

This one I have read, and if you like Shirley Jackson, you will like this title because she is THE author XD a more modern Victorian Gothic! They were happy, they lived in a castle, but then their parents die at dinner, but why? or a better question, who did it?

Her name is Mary Katherine Blackwood. She is eighteen years old, and she lives with Constance, her sister. She dislikes washing herself, and dogs, and noise, but she likes Constance, and Richard Plantagenet, and Amanita phalloides, the death-cap mushroom. Everyone else in my family is dead…

Bright Lines by Tanwi Nandini Islam

Included in the plus catalog, so it is perfect for you to recommend it to your customers who are looking for a new story! For as long as she can remember, Ella has longed to feel at home. Orphaned as a child after her parents’ murder and afflicted with hallucinations at dusk, she has always felt more at ease in nature than with people. She traveled from Bangladesh to Brooklyn to live with the Saleems: her uncle Anwar, aunt Hashi, and their beautiful daughter, Charu, her complete opposite. One summer, when Ella returns home from college, she discovers Charu’s friend Maya – an Islamic cleric’s runaway daughter – asleep in her bedroom.  

Family novels are usually full of drama! But family is family, isn’t it? Either you have a great family reunion or you end up dead for arsenic poisoning… who knows what our family think of us. Happy reading!!
