Have you heard the expression "There is not enough room for two women under the same roof"? You feel that tension in this story. But that's not all! There is guilt, shame, jealousy, heartache, love, and adjusting to becoming a step-parent. And then the true story of the worst disaster in American history. It's a real page turner
