Overview

Asia has always been the serious, got-it-all-under-control Swenson, who protected her sibling from childhood scrapes. Lucy, six years younger, made up for her mishaps with her infectious smile and enthusiasm. Now, giddily in love and about to be married, Lucy has never been happier-until she learns that Asia's breast cancer is back. How can she get excited about planning her future when her sister is fighting for her own?

Friends and family mean more than they ever have to Asia, and lately, her charming co-worker Brandon Peters has been popping up wherever she goes. Talk about timing: could Asia be falling in love for the first time in her life? With Lucy's help, she's going to seize each day-losing herself in giggles and adventures, opening herself up to new relationships and deeper connections. And nothing, absolutely nothing, will stop her from walking down the aisle as her sister's maid of honor.

    Can't wait for the next one

    This is a story about the way life-changing events force us to reevaluate who we are and who we want to be¿not for the sake of personal legacy, but for the sake of personal happiness. It¿s difficult to explain what makes this book so good without giving away too much of the plot. The author, Tanya Michna, capitalized on two strengths in writing this novel. First, she¿s gifted at writing natural dialog, and there were conversations throughout the novel that I could easily picture myself having. Second, she knows how to introduce the kind of detail that makes readers feel like we¿re inside her story without making her settings obtrusive. By Chapter 5, the fluidity of the story had become so compelling, and the characters so relatable, that it was just easier to keep reading than, say, eat, sleep, or shower. Michna didn¿t create the relationship between Asia and Lucy in Chapter 1. The relationship had already existed for nearly three decades before Michna started recording it. The interaction between them is almost rhythmic, and evokes their entire history. But while the two sisters are the stars of this particular show, they¿re supported by a strong ensemble of family and friends, and by the end of the story all the characters have evolved toward more complete versions of themselves. For the last couple of years, I¿ve been asking strangers in airports if they¿ve read Leif Enger¿s Peace Like a River. Now I¿ll be asking them if they¿ve read Tanya Michna¿s Necessary Arrangements.
