Maura Preszler, author of 'Choosing to See Beauty'. Credit: Hannah Quintana Photography. Denver Newsroom, Jul 29, 2021 / 10:54 am (CNA). Maura Preszler grew up in an abusive household, despite the family’s outward Catholic appearance.

And yet I found this show charming and challenging in equal measure, perhaps because it questions the dynamics of its central characters even while reveling in them.
