Overview

When is it time to say goodbye? For twelve years Ann McCray has not had a kiss from her husband or heard him say, "I love you." He has been in a coma since a tragic car accident, and now Ann is approaching forty, childless in their dream house. When she took her vows of "in sickness and in health," she never imagined this. Tom Nash has just moved in next door with his teenaged daughter. Back in his glory days, Tom knew how to pitch a no-hitter, but he's never been good with women. His purple-haired daughter Mer baffles him more than anyone. She needs some maternal guidance, and she's not getting it from her self-absorbed mother. As Ann finds herself drawn to Tom and his daughter, there may be hope for a new life with her new neighbor-if she can reconcile the dividing lines between love and loyalty.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Ann McCrary's marriage came to a standstill when a car crash nearly ended her husband's life and put him into a deep coma. That was 12 years ago, and ever since, her life has been on hold-a recurring pattern of work, home, and nursing home visits. Then former baseball star Tom Nash moves in, clueless as to how to deal with his rebellious teenage daughter, and Ann's world expands in a totally unexpected way. Hilarious moments (Ann's aging hippie mother is priceless) provide sharp contrast to the real issues of loving, letting go, and living again that are at the heart of this touching, exceptionally well-done novel. Law (Just Sex) lives in Minnesota.
