The Baileys are a family like many others. They love each other deeply, and they've also worked out a system of coping with the differences between them. But that system breaks down as love gives way to complacency, and devotion becomes nothing more than duty. The Baileys think they're headed for a family vacation. They're going to end up with something more.

We were excited to find this radio drama, as we were headed to a cabin with our kids just like the family in the description. We were soon disappointed, however, as the family in the drama consisted of parents, their 2 grown sons, and a fiancee. The raw subject matter focused on marriage (newlyweds and seasoned parents) and how to get through some pointed issues. This is a worthy topic for the right audience, but a road-tripping family with non-adult kids in tow is not that audience.
This is a really well done production, as always. The Bailey family is like many others today, relationships distant and rather strained. The underlying problems are very well portrayed and hit home with me. The story both brings to light the common issues that can destroy families and marriages, and also offers hope and guidance on what can give practical help. This is a great story and I really recommend it.
