“This is one beautiful book. I was wowed by Keane’s writing and narrative skill–and by what she knows about trouble.” –Stephen King

How much can a family forgive?

Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, rookie NYPD cops, are neighbors in the suburbs. What happens behind closed doors in both houses–the loneliness of Francis’s wife, Lena, and the instability of Brian’s wife, Anne, sets the stage for the explosive events to come.

In Mary Beth Keane’s extraordinary novel, a lifelong friendship and love blossoms between Kate Gleeson and Peter Stanhope, born six months apart. One shocking night their loyalties are divided, and their bond will be tested again and again over the next thirty years. Heartbreaking and redemptive, Ask Again, Yes is a gorgeous and generous portrait of the daily intimacies of marriage and the power of forgiveness.

"Mary Beth Keane looks past the veneer that covers ordinary moments and into the very heart of real life. There's a Tolstoyan gravity, insight, and moral heft in these pages, and Keane's ability to plumb the depths of authentic feeling while avoiding sentimentality leaves one shaking one's head in frank admiration. This wonderful book is so many things: a gripping family drama; a sensitive meditation on mental illness; a referendum on the power and cost of loyalty; a ripping yarn that takes us down into the depths and back up; in short, a triumph."
Matthew Thomas, author of We Are Not Ourselves
