"For Ally Anderson, life is uncertain. Her daughter's constant illness from illusive allergies have Ally's family constantly on edge, so much so, that a loving family drifts apart. The Other Family is a touching look into the dissolution of a marriage where there's no love lost, just a gradual drift, and the search for answers at all costs, even if those answers involve another family and a past Ally has been content to avoid until her daughter's health depends on it. The Other Family stabs at the insecurity an answerless life brings and the way we redefine ourselves to untangle the truth." --Kristin Fields, author of A Lily in the Light

"Through the eyes of Ally Anderson, a delightfully vulnerable and surprisingly powerful woman who will stop at nothing on her quest to cure her daughter's mysterious illness, Nyhan redefines the traditional boundaries of family and reminds us that strength can be displayed in unexpected and unusual ways. I loved every minute of this book and its cast of lovable, eccentric people--don't miss it!" --Kerry Anne King, bestselling author of Whisper Me This and Everything You Are

"Ally Anderson has a problem any parent can relate to: she'll do anything to save her daughter's life. Kylie has severe allergies that seem to be getting worse. When Ally enlists the help of an unconventional doctor who has a protocol that might help, she finds more than she bargained for as she embarks on a journey that leads her to her birth family as well as a new philosophy of life and love. Written with Loretta Nyhan's trademark humor and compassion, The Other Family is a beautiful, suspenseful story of hope standing up to fear in a world where we never have the control we wish for." --Maddie Dawson, bestselling author of Matchmaking for Beginners

"Both timeless in [its] portrayal of the lengths a mother would go to for her child, and timely in its thoughtful discussion of hot-button topics, this funny yet touching story had me in its grip from the very first page. You'll root for Ally as soon as you meet her!" --Lea Geller, author of Trophy Life
