Seven Days of Us

Francesca Hornak

It's Christmas, and for the first time in years, the entire Birch family--parents Emma and Andrew and grown daughters Olivia and Phoebe--will be under one roof. Olivia, a doctor, has just returned from treating an epidemic abroad, and is told that she must stay in quarantine for a week--and so too should her family. For the next seven days, the Birches are forced into each other's orbits. In close proximity, not much can stay hidden for long, and as revelations and long-held tensions come to light, nothing is more shocking than the unexpected guest who's about to arrive...A warm, wry, sharply observed debut.
