Overview

Lucy Tuttle is a workaholic financial planner whose biggest worry is how to line up the sticky notes on her desk just so, but when her free-spirited, vivacious aunt dies in a car accident halfway across the world, Lucy's carefully ordered world spins out of control.

With her last family member gone, the big 3-0 approaching, domestication closing in, and her faltering biological clock a never-ending reminder of the time she isn't spending building a family, Lucy tries to make a home for herself and her eco-activist boyfriend in the fixer-upper she's inherited from her aunt. But as she struggles to settle into a life of renovation, cohabitation, organic lentils, and sock thievery, she starts to wonder how she ended up there--and when she'll feel alive again.

As she works through her grief and tries to find somewhere to belong, Lucy begins to understand that sometimes, realizing one dream might mean giving up another.

Poignant, quirky, and humorous, The Sock Wars is a contemporary women's fiction story from author Maia Sepp that reminds us there's only one thing harder than living up to other people's expectations: facing your own.

    Deep reading.

    This is a terrific deep thinking book. It has some humor and some romance mixed into it. It is well written and an easy read. It makes you want to cry for the main character in places. A terrific story. I will definitely read more books by this author.

    I really liked this comedic novel about a woman trying to find her way in life in the face of horrific bosses, dead relatives and home improvements. It was funny and sad at the same time, and got me thinking about my own life and choices. I'm looking forward to this author's next novel!

    This is not a romantic comedy

    It was my interpretation that this was a romantic comedy and it was not. Therefore if you are looking for funny lightheartedness this not the book for you. If you are looking for something regarding a woman making changes after a tragic event then this is more appropriate.
