‘Thicker Than Water’ By Dora Li

After being insulted by her sister-in-law asking if the baby was indeed her niece and inappropriately touched by the mother-in-law’s new husband, the protagonist has enough of “trying to make it work” with her husband’s rude family. Years of complaints falling on deaf ears leads to her finally making the right choice to stand up for herself and set boundaries where those terrible people are concerned.
