These days people are getting married - and having kids - later in life. But let's turn the clock back to the 1970s — when sometimes parents got married too young and then had a change of heart about who they wanted to be with. 

That's what happens in the new novel "The Nakeds" by author Lisa Glatt. 

It focuses on a young girl named Hannah. Her parents split up. Her dad ditches his Jewish faith and converts to Christianity. Her mom finds a new mate and becomes a nudist. 

"The Nakeds" is a work of fiction, but Lisa Glatt shares a lot in common with her protagonist.
