Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On a snowy night in Cape Cod, True Dickinson's friends have gathered to celebrate her 43rd birthday, leading True to reflect upon her life. On the one hand, both her son and the small business she started after the death of her husband eight years ago are thriving. On the other, she feels youth and beauty slipping away, and the possibility of romance has never seemed more remote.

But everything will change in the moment True and her best friend Isabelle slide off the road into a snow-filled ditch on the drive home. Twelve Times Blessed is the story of one year of a woman's life in which everything changes, and an unforgettable tale of the pleasures and perils of love in the modern age.

Twelve Times Blessed is the story of one year of transformation in a woman's life, and an unforgettable tale of the perils and pleasures of love in the modern age.
