Anna, another Walsh girl

One of my favourite authors, Marian Keyes, has written a novel about another girl in the Walsh Family. Anybody Out There is the story of Anna, the former flaky hippyish sister. Anna has gotten her act together and moved to NYC. So why she wonders is she lying in her mom's Irish living room all battered and scarred. And where is Adrian?

This novel is a wonderful book as Anna tries to figure out what has happened and then come to terms with it. As with all Keyes novels there are dark moments leavened with laughter. The only bad part is we only have Helen left and then no more Walsh girls. sniff, sniff. Maybe Mrs. Walsh will have an adventure then.
