Description
"New York Times" bestselling author Jane Green presents a compelling novel about the love that keeps us together when everything is falling apart.
A successful photographer living in Bedford, New York, Callie Perry adores the settled existence she shares with her handsome husband and two adorable children. But while Callie's life is practically perfect, her nearest and dearest are having a harder time.
Her best friend Lila is stuck dealing with her dream man's demanding ex-wife. Her free-spirited sister Steffi is adjusting after leaving her city life for the simplicity of the country. And her divorced parents, Walter and Honor, can barely stand each other.
But when Callie is diagnosed with a recurrence of the cancer she thought she had beaten, everything changes. With their own problems suddenly in perspective, Callie's family and friends rally to support her during an unforgettable, emotional and ultimately life-changing year.


About the Author
A former feature writer for the Daily Express in the UK, Green took a leap of faith when she left, in 1996, to freelance and work on a novel. Seven months later, there was a bidding war for her first book, Straight Talking, the saga of a single career girl looking for the right man. The novel was a hit in England, and Green was an overnight success. Most weekends see her cooking for a minimum of twenty people in her home in Westport, Connecticut, where she lives with her husband and their blended family. When she is not writing, cooking, filling her house with friends and looking after their animals, she is usually thanking the Lord for caffeine-filled energy drinks.
