The New York Times bestselling author is back with a warm, winning new novel about daring to love, braving a loss, and setting yourself free. Caddie Winger's mother died when she was nine, and Caddie was raised by her grandmother. Now their roles are reversed, and it's Caddie -- thirty-two years old, still living with her grandmother, and giving piano lessons to neighborhood children -- who takes care of Nana. When Nana breaks a leg and insists on going into a convalescent home, Caddie finds herself being pulled out of her comfy, self-made nest. Jolted & living alone for the first time since college, she looks at the world with new eyes and begins to take charge of her future.
