We have officially entered the Holiday Trifecta! Halloween is behind us; Thanksgiving and Christmas (or your December holiday of choice) are looming on the horizon, with a brand-new year hanging in the not-too-distant distance. Family gatherings are a given for most of us during the holiday season, which are anticipated by some and dreaded by others. On this week’s Wine, Women & Words, Diana and I break down our list of books that make us grateful for the family we have, or simply help us survive the craziness that can be The Family.
