We spent time recently at our in-laws house. Between cooking, donut runs, soccer, hiking and Foosball tournaments, there was still time to catch up on family news and events. This year, fortunately most of the news was good. But it isn’t always that way.

Other years there have been more difficult subjects to discuss. You know. The kind that make everyone feel rotten. Every family has them. Whether it is taking Grandma’s car keys away, moving someone to assisted living who doesn’t want to go, money trouble, addiction interventions or unexpected health trouble: these are the kind of conversations that are so hard.

Families in fiction offer many opportunities for drama and conflict as they resolve their issues. If you enjoy reading about other families and seeing how their disagreements work themselves out, here is a list of books that I recommend from BQB Publishing:
