The Cape House begins on the day Bochner’s mother Debbi tells her that she’s received a prognosis of terminal cancer and has decided to move to the family’s beloved summer home in Cape Cod to die. Over the next six weeks, as Debbi deteriorates, Bochner writes the story of her family and looks back on the winding road she trudged with her mother through addiction, recovery, and redemption. Readers travel with the author from Phoenix, Arizona to a medieval Dutch castle to the Old City of Jerusalem, where an array of colorful characters shape her destiny in unexpected ways. Bochner presents a real-life portrait of a family struggling to stay together even as their personal journeys threaten to tear them apart.
