`Like the wonderful Anne Tyler, Hemmings writes witty, immersive, immensely readable and deeply humane fiction about entirely believable characters' Metro Sarah St.
John is reeling. Her twenty-two year old son, Cully, has been killed in an avalanche and, much as she'd like to be left alone to grieve quietly, no one will let her.
Her father, a retired shopping channel addict has moved into her basement.
Her best friend, a divorcee who always manages to say the wrong thing, has become something of a life-coach. And then there's Cully's father, whose sudden re-emergence in Sarah's life stirs a cauldron of emotions.
Just as Sarah is ready to face the world, a girl called Kit appears on her doorstep. And she's got a secret that will change all their lives forever.
