Description

The stunning new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Open House and Never Change.

Three women demonstrate the power of love and the importance of freedom in this unique new novel by the author of The Art of Mending, Open House, and The Year of Pleasures.

Paige Dunn is a woman whose beauty, intelligence, and free spirit are such that two men in town are pursuing her despite the fact she has been handicapped by polio and is raising her daughter with just the help of her carer Peacie. Her daughter, Diana, longs to please her mother, and also escape her, yet when the precarious independence of this household is threatened, Diana makes a radical move which changes everything...

In this extraordinary novel about the resilience of the human spirit, Berg demonstrates her ability to be both poignant and amusing and captures the special relationship which these three women share.

Praise for Elizabeth Berg: 'Berg oozes warmth, wisdom and generosity of spirit. Her writing is quite brilliant, as soft as a kiss, as sharp as a knife. An American Maeve Binchy, a modern-day Jane Austen, whatever praise you heap on Elizabeth Berg, she probably deserves it.' Anna Maxted
