A SCATTERED LIFE by Karen McQuestion, 2010. This was a wonderful book! I highly recommend it! Skyla Plinka is a free-spirited young woman, who has a controlling mother-in-law named Audrey. A new neighbor moved in with her husband, 5 children and a huge mastiff named buddy. This is the story of the three women and how they learned to love each other in spite of their differences. Please read it, you won’t be sorry!
