Enjoyed this book very much and was routing for and commiserating with Anna while reading. Supposed it was because I could envision myself in her place at some point in my life. The style of writing was engaging and I will certainly look for other books by this author. ( )

"After the sudden death of her husband, Dill, Anna Rainey is emotionally unable to return to the home they shared. Instead she becomes a perpetual house guest, going from friend to friend, seeking the solace and security in their lives that she no longer feels in her own. Each friend offers a different kind of comfort. Lexi and her young daughter form a sort of surrogate family. Amy and Tim, a newly married couple, give Anna a comfortable place to stay but are so much in love that it is difficult for her to be around them. Philip's platonic friendship threatens to turn into something more complicated. Lydia plies Anna with glasses of red wine and self-help-book platitudes. Offers of advice are everywhere: join a support group, reconnect with family, find a new man. For a while Anna tries to listen - she even meets a new man at a support group - but these remedies fall flat. Ultimately Anna's survival, hard-won and precious, comes in her own time."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
