“When Sam loses their home on a 'crazy' invention investment, Ellen, his wife, must come to grips with saying goodbye to her beloved house and with her anger. A timely and thoughtful book.”
-- Linda Vinstra, Great Northern Books and Hobbies, Oscoda, MI


Description

"[One] of the most engrossing books this season."
--O at Home

"Altogether so superior it's hard to believe that it's a debut."
--Booklist

"This novel is a delight. It grabs you from the opening paragraph . . . and holds you with its cathartic exploration of home and family."
--The Oregonian

Ellen Flanagan has two precious girls to raise, a cozy neighborhood coffee shop to run, terrific friends, and a sexy, if irresponsible, husband. And she adores her house, a yellow Cape Cod filled with quirky antiques, beloved nooks, and a million memories. But as her eighteen-year-roller-coaster marriage heads toward divorce, she's about to lose it all--her house, her husband . . . and her sanity.

Set in the gorgeous surroundings of Portland, Oregon, Kathleen McCleary's funny, poignant, curl-up-and-read debut strikes a deep emotional chord and explores the very notion of what makes a house a home.
