The ties that bind: an adult brother who has never gone farther than his own backyard; an aging mother, captive to her own secrets, who can no longer take care of him; and the responsibility for both of them laid at the feet of a repressed, dutiful daughter by a beloved, departed father. Welcome to Jody Kochansky's life. This is how it is, how it always has been, and how, she believes, it will always be. But when she is offered the job she never knew she always wanted, Jody comes untethered. She flies, swims, drives, and rollerskates away from Brooklyn into new, uncharted territory: her own desires. Discover along with her that life is full of possibilities for those who dare to let go of the ropes.
