Amy Rosenblatt Solomon was thirty eight years old when she dropped dead on the treadmill from an undiagnosed heart conditon. A gifted doctor, active mother, devoted wife, and beloved daughter, Amy left behind a family devastated by her loss but determined to carry on for the sake of her three young children.

Roger and Ginny Rosenblatt left their grandparental roles to move in with their son in law and his adorable offspring. Ginny, a former kindegarten teacher, falls right in with the children's hectic schedules. Roger, aka Boppo the Great, has a little more trouble adjusting. His tasks with the children include, but are not limited to, making toast, reading James Joyce, and teaching them the word of the day and his own anthem.

With the wit, heart, and precision that has characterized his body of work, Rosenblatt peels back the layers on this most personal of losses to create both a moving tribute to his late daughter and a heartwarming testament to familial love.
