"A story for anyone who has ever felt lost, isolated, or fantasized about reinventing herself -- and isn't that all of us?"--Jenny Rosenstrach, New York Times Bestselling author of Dinner: A Love Story
Ivy is on the run. She is finally ready to trade in a dead-end future of college debt and family obligations for the thrill of a fresh start. But when she finds herself in an isolated cabin in the Poconos, she realizes that starting over is more difficult than she thought.
Especially when a stranger stumbles into her hiding place.
Mary Ellen is attempting to reinvent herself. Dissatisfied with her career and family life, Mary Ellen is finally pursuing art, something she has put aside for years. So, when she arrives at a cabin in the woods for an artist's retreat and finds a teenage girl instead, she realizes this is her chance to start new.
But in the midst of a dangerous snow storm, the truth waits to be set free.
In this coming-of-age meets coming-of-middle-age novel, Ivy and Mary Ellen must confront what kind of people they want to be--and when it really matters, what kind of people they are.
