Lee Woodruff, "Those We Love Most"
R.J. Julia Booksellers, Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at 7pm
A bright June day. A split-second distraction. A family forever changed. Life is good for Maura Corrigan. Married to her college sweetheart, Pete, raising three young kids with her parents nearby in her peaceful Chicago suburb, her world is secure. Then one day, in a single turn of fate, that entire world comes crashing down and everything that she thought she knew changes. Maura must learn to move forward with the weight of grief and the crushing guilt of an unforgivable secret. Pete senses a gap growing between him and his wife but finds it easier to escape to the bar with his friends than face the flaws in his marriage. Meanwhile, Maura's parents are dealing with the fault lines in their own marriage. Charismatic Roger, who at sixty-five, is still chasing the next business deal and Margaret, a pragmatic and proud homemaker, have been married for four decades, seemingly happily. But the truth is more complicated. Like Maura, Roger has secrets of his own and when his deceptions and weaknesses are exposed, Margaret's love and loyalty face the ultimate test. Those We Love Most chronicles how these unforgettable characters confront their choices, examine their mistakes, fight for their most valuable relationships, and ultimately find their way back to each other. It takes us deep into the heart of what makes families and marriages tick and explores a fundamental question: when the ties that bind us to those we love are strained or broken, how do we pick up the pieces? Deeply penetrating and brimming with emotional insight, this engrossing family drama heralds the arrival of a major new voice in contemporary fiction.
Lee Woodruff is the coauthor with her husband, Bob Woodruff, of the number one New York Times bestseller In an Instant, and the author of the essay collection Perfectly Imperfect.

Lee Woodruff reads from "Those We Love Most"
Common Good Books, Monday, September 24, 2012 at 7pm
“Lee Woodruff has written a beautiful, humorous, poignant page-turner.”--Adriana Trigiani
On a warm June day, Maura Corrigan is walking with her nine-year-old son, James, as he rides his bike to school when the unthinkable happens. He darts on to the street and is hit by Alex, a 17- year-old neighbor. What unfolds in the wake of the accident is an intricate web of relationships, secrets, and betrayals that ultimately create a story of resilience.
Told through the perspectives of two generations within the family, Those We Love Most chronicles how an unimaginable sudden twist of fate forces each family member to confront their choices, examine their mistakes, and fight for their most valuable relationships. It raises the age-old question: Why do we hurt the ones we love?
At once thoughtful, penetrating and engrossing, the characters live with you long after you’ve finished the novel. This debut family saga that will satisfy readers of The Summer We Fell Apart, We Were the Mulvaneys, and Saint Maybe.
Lee Woodruff is a contributing editor for CBS This Morning, reporting on a variety of home- and family-related topics. Her first book, the best-selling In an Instant, garnered critical acclaim for its compelling and humorous chronicle of her family’s journey to recovery following her husband Bob’s roadside bomb injury in Iraq. Her second book was a collection of essays, Perfectly Imperfect – A Life in Progress. Those We Love Most is her first novel.
