Chosen for special attention by the Southern Indie Booksellers Alliance (SIBA), as an Okra Pick! - a handful of books sellers are most excited about, from the hundreds published each season . . .
and nominated for the SIBA Book Award
As four women in a close-knit suburban development grapple with the illness of a long-time neighbor, each of them also looks closely at the pressing issues in her own life — a marriage put on hold because of a difficult child . . . a nurse’s eerie and unwanted gift of diagnosis. . . a widow’s destructive bitterness . . . the price of a successful career. As each one learns to say goodbye to her friend, she also gains from her the strength to say goodbye to the parts of her own life that aren’t working, and to move on and change.
