From the beloved author ofHow to Be LostandForgive Metwelve illuminating stories about love, identity, and motherhood in a changing world Acclaimed author Amanda Eyre Ward has written a stunning collection of twelve stories about love in all its complexity, absurdity, and glory. From San Francisco to Savannah, Texas to Montana, Wards characters are united in their fervent search for a place where they truly belong. In a Maine cabin, a family tragedy forces Bill and Lizzy to take a hard look at their own lives. Casey, a suburban New Yorker with a wry sense of humor, braves the dating scene after losing her husband. Annie, a librarian in a small mining town, must choose between the only home shes ever known and the possibility of a new life. And in six linked stories spanning a decade of her life, Lola Wilkerson navigates elopement, motherhood, and lingering questions about who she wants to be when she grows up. With writing as evocative as it is striking, Amanda Eyre Ward once again proves herself an astute interpreter of emotions both familiar and strange. Whether exploring the fierceness of a mothers love or the consolations of marriage, these stories are imbued with humor, clear-eyed insight, and emotional richness.
