Book Review: Honestly, We Meant Well by Grant Ginder

Sue Ellen is a classics professor, traveling to Greece to give lectures for a tour group, remembering her first love on the island of Aegina, thinking if this is what her life is meant to be.

Dean is her husband, a bestselling author and a lecturer in creative writing, juggling an affair with a student and his own writers block.

Will is their son, just graduated from college, flailing in life, uncertain what to do next besides trolling Grindr for a hookup.

In Greece each of the three of them will reevaluate their decisions and how they have gotten where they are and if this is where they want to be. Like the ruins surrounding them, their lives seem to be in pieces, but maybe there's a tragic beauty in that.

This book is published by Flatiron Books, a division of Macmillan, my employer.
