"Comparisons to John Irving and Tennessee Williams would not be amiss in this show-stopping debut." - Kirkus Reviews, starred.

"A compelling, richly layered story reminiscent of works by John Irving and Anne Tyler." - Library Journal , starred.

When we meet septuagenarian Margaret Hughes, she is living alone in a mansion in Seattle with only a massive collection of valuable antiques for company. Enter Wanda Schultz, a young woman with a broken heart who has come west to search for her wayward boyfriend. Both women are guarding dark secrets and have spent many years building up protective armor against the outside world. As their tentative friendship evolves, the armor begins to fall away and Margaret opens her house to the younger woman. This launches a series of unanticipated events, leading Margaret to discover a way to redeem her cursed past, and Wanda to learn the true purpose of her cross-country journey.
