Even on their wedding day, John and Irene sensed that they were about to make a mistake. Years later, divorced and living in different parts of the country, they seem to have nothing in common except the most important person in each of their lives: Sadie, their spirited 18-year-old daughter. Feeling distanced from her parents, Sadie is growing more and more attached to her new boyfriend Ron. But in Elizabeth Berg's 2011 story of second chances, a tragedy draws Irene and John together to support their daughter. These three scattered people may now have to confront how they really feel about each other, and whether being a family is still possible.

"[Berg] has a knack for taking you right into the soul of her characters, as they respond to joy and tragedy in a perfectly imperfect way."—Chicago Sun-Times
