Given a tempting career-boosting hospital administrator offer, John Dyorich takes his family, uprooting their lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts to move across the country to Salt Lake City, Utah. John and his wife,Diane, both feel a little uneasy about moving where they know they can expect to be surrounded by a lot of Mormons, but they’re well-prepared to refuse any and all expected attempts to be proselyted to their strange religion. Family adjustment to their new home is very different for each member of the family. For older son, Joey, it’s not a happy move. It’s often said that things have to take a turn for the very worst, to bring a person to rock bottom, before things get better. And get worse they do. For the whole family. But, it’s also more the rule than the exception that life is full of surprises. The Dyorich family has more than their share of those surprises in the coming years. And occasionally in our lives, we find that we are doing that which we were sure we were never going to do. And liking it.
