Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[One] of the most engrossing books this season."

--O at Home

"Altogether so superior it's hard to believe that it's a debut."

--Booklist

"This novel is a delight. It grabs you from the opening paragraph . . . and holds you with its cathartic exploration of home and family."

--The Oregonian

Ellen Flanagan has two precious girls to raise, a cozy neighborhood coffee shop to run, terrific friends, and a sexy, if irresponsible, husband. And she adores her house, a yellow Cape Cod filled with quirky antiques, beloved nooks, and a million memories. But as her eighteen-year-roller-coaster marriage heads toward divorce, she's about to lose it all--her house, her husband . . . and her sanity.

Set in the gorgeous surroundings of Portland, Oregon, Kathleen McCleary's funny, poignant, curl-up-and-read debut strikes a deep emotional chord and explores the very notion of what makes a house a home.

Synopsis:

Set in a beautiful suburb of Portland, Oregon, this debut novel follows a woman who--forced to sell her home during a painful divorce--decides that she loves her house so much that she'll do just about anything to keep it.

About the Author

Kathleen McCleary is a reporter and writer whose work has appeared in The New York Times, Good Housekeeping, More, and Health. A column she wrote on marriage for USA Weekend magazine generated more mail than any other first-person column the magazine had ever run. She is also a regular columnist for HGTV.com; one of her pieces sparked such huge reader response that it launched a TV series on the HGTV network, "Bad Bad Bath."
