Summary
Three women, each facing an empty nest, come together to cheer and challenge one another in this insightful, poignant new novel from acclaimed author Susan Kietzman. For years, Ellie, Alice, and Joan enjoyed a casual friendship while volunteering at their children's Connecticut high school. Now, with those children grown and gone to college, a local tragedy brings the three into contact again. But what begins as a catch-up lunch soon moves beyond small talk to the struggles of this next stage of life. Joan Howard has spent thirty years of marriage doing what's expected of Howard women: shopping, dressing well, and keeping a beautiful home. Unfulfilled, her boredom and emptiness eventually find a secret outlet at the local casino. Meanwhile, Ellie's efforts to expand her accounting business lead to a new friendship that clashes with her family's traditional worldview. And Alice, feeling increasingly distant from her husband, and alienated from her once fit body, takes up running again. But a terrifying ordeal shatters her confidence and spurs a decision that will affect all three women in different ways. Over the course of an eventful year, Ellie, Alice, and Joan will meet every other Wednesday to talk, plan--and find the freedom, and the courage, to redefine themselves. Praise for the novels of Susan Kietzman -Beautifully written and closely observed...captures the deep and complicated love of family. Reading this lovely novel, I felt the embrace of summer on the shoreline.- -- New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice on The Summer Cottage -Readers will find themselves drawn into the tragedies and triumphs of this fictional family--distinct and yet utterly relatable.- -- Hartford Books Examiner on The Good Life
