Description

One morning, Rebecca wakes up and realises she has turned into the wrong person.

Is she really this joyous and outgoing organiser of parties, the put-upon heart of her dead husband's extended family?

What happened to her quiet and serious nineteen-year-old self, and what would have happened if she'd married her college sweetheart?

Can someone ever recover the person they've left behind?

Perhaps you need to be middle-aged to really get the full impact of <i>Back When We Were Grownups</i>. I did feel somewhat sympathetic towards the protagonist, Rebecca Davitch, who begins to question the years she has spent as a defacto matriarch, carer and general dogsbody for her long-dead husband's family. But compared to Tyler's other families, the Davitchs seemed a bit sketchy and dull.
