In the idyllic small town of Tucker, Vermont, life flows at a rhythmic pace for pediatrician Paige Pfeiffer. But when Mara O'Neill, her best friend and medical partner, inexplicably kills herself, Paige's comfortable world is suddenly shattered. Temporarily caring for Mara's newly adopted baby daughter while she comes to grips with her grief, Paige clings to the hope that, in time, her orderly life will return.

   

What she hadn't counted on were the unforeseen joys that often come with change, including the attentions of Noah Perrine, acting head of the private school where Paige coaches girls' athletics. Noah fills Paige's life with hope, and offers her things she never thought she wanted. Paige never expected to find the meaning of life in the death of a friend.

    " As with all of Barbara Delinsky's books... this was was a great read. I was drawn into the plot on multiple levels and was not disappointed in the end. Her characters are rich and full of life and her dialog is real. Highly recommend this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracy Hipp | 2/15/2014

    " This was an audio book and although the story was ok the narrator was just awful. The majority of women were whiny sounding (all teens in particular) and when she did a man's voice it was laughable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betty | 2/14/2014

    " A rather dark book, not a happy subject. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tyra | 2/14/2014

    " I always enjoy reading Barbara Delinsky when I'm in the mood for a good story and this one didn't disappoint. I only wish she could forget her romance writer start and not have the character married in 3 months! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy | 1/27/2014

    " There were some things that happened that were really unbelievable. Other than that, it was a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 1/23/2014

    " I thought this book was just OK through most of it, but then I was crying for the last ten pages! I guess it affected me and I was drawn in to their lives more than I expected. I have enjoyed this author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michyla | 1/21/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 1/11/2014

    " I'd forgotten that I'd already read this book but it ws still a good read the 2nd time around. Makes me take a closer look at the ones I love! And then hope and pray they never get that lonely. A sad book but also hopeful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherri | 12/16/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debora Smith | 11/20/2013

    " This is a story about how a woman's suicide (who we never meet in the book) affects her friends and colleagues. It was just ok. Too long and pretty boring and predictable - I just wanted it to be over. Best thing was that it was a library book so I didn't have to pay for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey Schatzabel | 6/3/2013

    " I read about 100 pages if this and just couldn't get into it. BD is usually an I-can't-put-it-down author for me, but I found this story slow and repetitive. It has been on the nightstand for weeks. "

    " This was a great book. It really pulled me in, and I related to each character. There is a LOT going on, but it all ends with a great lesson. The only thing that I didn't like was the descriptive sex scenes. "
