Book Review By MamaLuvsBooks: 
"All in the Family" is a collection of 101 stories relating to funny, quirky, lovable, and "dysfunctional" families. I love the beginning where it talks about families: 
     
"Families are all so different and yet the same. They're complicated and yet simple. They're a burden, but also a blessing. They're often the source of our greatest joys, but also our deepest pain. They can build us up and tear us down. Families add richness and complexity to our lives." - All in the Family

This quote from the book really hits home. It's all so true. We have had ups and downs within our family over the years. I love how the contributors in the book (especially the "Family Secrets" section) can be so open and honest. I'm sure I could write some stories of my own about my family, but writing it and putting everything out there would be tough.

I could relate to a story in the book about finding a long lost relative that someone did not even know they had in their life. I had a recent and wonderful experience this year that was similar. That's one thing I really love about this book, the fact that almost anyone will find some way to relate to the family stories.


THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THE BOOK:
1. It is fun to read with many short stories to choose from
2. It has relevant topics that anyone can relate to
3. The stories are short and sweet; great for a pick-up and put down book
4. Some stories are very touching
5. Love the stories that are funny
6. It has 101 stories that all have a different life lessons
7. It's received other positive reviews on Amazon
