"An affecting, deeply honest novel; at the same time, a lacerating indictment of our modern health care system."—KIRKUS REVIEWS 


A mid-life mom, Colleen Gallagher would do anything to protect her children from harm. When her daughter's husband falls ill with ALS, Colleen rolls up her sleeves and moves in, juggling the multiple roles of grandma, cook, and caregiver, only to discover that even her superhuman efforts can't fix what's wrong.

Montpelier Tomorrow is a novel that defies stereotypes and poses tough questions as one family struggles against a vicious disease and broken health care system. Will Colleen and her family pull together and weather the storm? Or will they shatter under the pressure of overwhelming odds?

If you like page-turning novels with flawed but admirable characters, discover the redemptive power of a mother's love and read Montpelier Tomorrow today.
