Staff Reviews


When choosing who to spend your life with, you may not always know the back story of what made them who they are. But, what if you did know and chose to be with them regardless?  

I found Ask Again, Yes thought provoking, engrossing, and quite moving. Two families, neighbors with crisscrossed lives in a multitude of ways, endure an unthinkable tragedy. The characters, each impacted in their own way, stayed with me long after I closed the book.

June 2019 Indie Next List


Ask Again, Yes is a compelling, heartbreaking, yet ultimately hopeful novel. Mary Beth Keane is incredibly talented; she does not sugar coat, instead giving readers a compulsively readable family drama. I did not expect to become so completely engrossed in these characters’ stories — two families whose lives become inextricably linked by young love and personal tragedy. Their myriad mistakes and attempts to atone beautifully demonstrate the power and grace found in forgiveness.”

How much can a family forgive?

A profoundly moving novel about two neighboring families in a suburban town, the friendship between their children, a tragedy that reverberates over four decades, the daily intimacies of marriage, and the power of forgiveness.

Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, rookie cops in the NYPD, live next door to each other outside the city. 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.

Ask Again, Yes is a deeply affecting exploration of the lifelong friendship and love that 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 40 years. Luminous, heartbreaking, and redemptive, Ask Again, Yes reveals the way childhood memories change when viewed from the distance of adulthood�villains lose their menace and those who appeared innocent seem less so. Kate and Peter�s love story, while haunted by echoes from the past, is marked by tenderness, generosity, and grace.
