Wish You Were Here by Stewart O’Nan
Family togetherness can be trying; especially for a family missing their patriarch.  But they are coming together for one more stay at the cabin on the lake.  Who will take home the collectible gas station glasses?  Who will get dad’s old golf clubs?  How do you say good-bye to the place most tied with your summer memories?
While not a lot actually happens O’Nan is great at creating believable characters and situations.  You continue reading wanting to see how these characters are able to change over the course of a week through their points of view and that of their family members.
