Overview

Wynn Tynan, a young woman growing up in rural Maine, has been raised by her accomplished parents to be an artist. When Wynn's idyllic life takes a brief wrong turn—she becomes pregnant as a teenager—her loving but dominating mother is determined that her goals remain intact, and with reluctance, Wynn gives the baby up for adoption. At art school, she meets Patrick Foss, with his golden eyes, ragged sweaters, and single-minded devotion to his sculpture, and knows she has found the love of her life. But fate intervenes with a tragedy from her past, and Wynn's life spirals into nightmare.

A warm, wise novel about a woman emerging from a troubled past to ask herself five crucial questions in an attempt to understand who she is, where she comes from, and how she got where she is.

    This is the best book in the world

    I recommended it to everyone I know, and everyone who read it absolutely loved it. (Including male friends who normally wouldn't have any interest in women's fiction.) This wonderful, wonderful novel will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you wonder--why isn't this book #1 on every bestseller list around? It really is THAT good. I wish it was in print so more readers could enjoy it.
