'Like the wonderful American novelist Anne Tyler, Hemmings writes witty, immersive, immensely readable and deeply humane fiction about entirely believable characters' Metro

In the idyllic ski resort of Breckenridge, there's trouble in paradise for Sarah St. John. Her twenty-two year old son, Cully, has been killed in an avalanche, and she is trying to pick up the pieces of her life. Sarah is single, but, much as she'd like to be, not being left alone in her grief.

Her father, a retiree who has become addicted to QVC, is ever-present, having moved into her basement. Her best friend, a divorcee who always manages to say the wrong thing, has become something of a macabre life-coach. And then there’s Cully’s father, whose sudden reemergence in Sarah’s life stirs a cauldron of emotions. Just as Sarah is ready to face the world, a girl called Kit appears on her doorstep. And she’s got a secret that will change all their lives forever.

Told in Kaui Hart Hemmings’ unsentimental and refreshingly wry style, this is a novel about what we will risk to keep our loved ones close - a novel full of hope, humour and love.

Review:

"Like the wonderful American novelist Anne Tyler, Hemmings writes witty, immersive, immensely readable and deeply humane fiction about entirely believable characters." (Patricia Nicol Metro)

"This is a novel that creeps up on you, its frequent bursts of humour masking a gentle yet astute examination of the various ways in which people deal with bereavement and the bereaved." (Natasha Tripney Observer)

"I was reminded of the film Little Miss Sunshine; the book has the same unsentimental approach to life’s big events." (Lucy Scholes Independent)

"Touching and terrifically well written." ( Good Housekeeping)

"Absorbing novel about grief and coping." ( RTE Guide)
