Description

No one knows why Teddi Lerner left, but everyone knows why she's back. Twelve-year-old Shayna persuaded "Aunt Tee" to return to Chance, Ohio, to photograph her father's wedding. Even six years after Shay's mother died, Teddi can hardly bear the thought of her best friend's husband remarrying. But her bond with Shay is stronger than the hurt.

Review quote

"In Left to Chance, Teddi Lerner returns to Chance, Ohio after bolting during her best friend's funeral six years ago. She faces her old friends, a former flame, and an adorably spunky "niece" only to discover that the definition of family is both acutely intimate and ever evolving. Amy Sue Nathan, with her signature humor, deep insight, and elegant prose, shows us that the price of admission for a life full of love and friendship is a beautiful kind of chaos." --Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author of The Vanishing Year

"In Left to Chance, Amy Sue Nathan shows us through her lovably flawed protagonist, Teddi Lerner, that you can go home again--but not without scaling a mountain of grief and unanswered questions, being schooled by the feisty adolescent daughter of your late best friend, and navigating a bona fide love triangle. In short, you can go home again, but what you'll find there is anyone's guess. Watching how Nathan navigates Teddi, and the reader, through it all is like pulling up a chair at a table of old friends at your favorite small town coffee shop--it's delicious, engaging, and unexpectedly comforting even in the midst of life's uncertainties. " -Susan Gloss, USA Today bestselling author of the novel Vintage

"An emotionally authentic story of love, loss, and nostalgia. Amy Sue Nathan's sharply drawn plot and characters will have you turning pages well past bedtime." --Emily Liebert, author of Some Women

"Chance, Ohio, was no place for wimps." And there we start on our journey through Amy Sue Nathan's wonderful book, Left To Chance. Sometimes you have to leave home, come back, and leave again, to find yourself." --Cathy Lamb, author of The Language of Sisters

"As beautiful as Teddi Lerner's photography, Amy Nathan's writing will draw you into the secrets, charm, and hope of Chance, Ohio. The past is revealed, a future is found, and nothing is Left to Chance!" - Amy E. Reichert, author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake and The Simplicity of Cider

"In this witty, touching, beautifully written novel about grief, friendship, and love in its many forms, Amy Sue Nathan reminds us that sometimes, no matter how hard it might be, facing the past is the only way to discover what's truly important." -- Ellen Marie Wiseman, bestselling author of What She Left Behind and The Life She Was Given
