View Full Version : Family Recovering from Crisis (Book or Script Recommendation)

I'm looking for book or script recommendation where a family is recovering from crisis and the whole family is intact. Meaning no child and/or parent died. They are overcoming an issue such as domestic violence, alcoholism, child abuse, etc.

Actually, a movie just came out called 50/50 about a young man who finds out he has cancer, and his family is intact. You can download the script here (http://www.mypdfscripts.com/screenplays/50-50-2008-07-02-draft).

We Were The Mulvaneys (http://www.amazon.com/Were-Mulvaneys-Oprahs-Book-Club/dp/0452282829) by Joyce Carol Oates.

a rape occurs, a daughter is exiled, much alcohol is consumed, and the farm is lost.
