Absorbed in her own failings, Clara Purdy crashes her life into a sharp left turn, taking the young family in the other car along with her. When bruises on the mother, Lorraine, prove to be late-stage cancer, Clara - against all habit and comfort - moves the three children and their terrible grandmother into her own house. Clara then has to cope with the consequences: exhaustion, fury, hilarity, and unexpected love. But she must question her own motives. Is she acting out of true goodness, or out of guilt? Most shamefully, has she taken over simply because she wants the baby for her own? This compassionate, funny, and fiercely intelligent novel looks at life and death through decidedly suburban reading glasses: being good, being at fault, and finding some balance on the precipice.
I'm about halfway through this book and I am really enjoying it, it isnt a fast paced adventure or anything like it but the storyline is catchy a lonely lady taking on a family of a woman struck with cancer to counteract her guilt for a car accident they were in. It is good the way Ms Endicott shows how putting yourself out there and getting involved in other people can bring you back to life and show how much you were missing out on. It is an easy flowing story of finding family in the most unusual way.
