Leaves...Please support this book, it’s a finely written family history with unforgettable characters.

Review by Nancy

Leaving a place is hard if it’s always been your home and the Gold siblings weren’t any different. They have grown up in the Sugar Maple Inn in Connecticut but things were different now: Mom and Dad were both gone and each child has their own interests, yearnings and thoughts. The place had been sold and it was time for the final Sugar Maple Inn Halloween Party – a tradition started by their mother many years ago.


This wonderful blend of irony, love and humor is one of my favorite books this year. The characters are so typical of a family: the Politician, the musician and the rest. They bicker, the love each other deeply (although it doesn’t always seem like it) and the band together one last time to make it work.

This is the first Michael Baron book I’ve read – the good news it this is the first books featuring the Gold family but not the last. The ending leaves you wanting to know what happened and that’s just screaming for several sequels. Yippee! He’s writing them! Please support this book, it’s a finely written family history with unforgettable characters.

This happens to all families at some time or the other but when you say there are sequels it is a nice feeling.
