Synopses & Reviews
In the small town of Larksville, the Pike family is hopelessly out of step with the daily rhythms of life after the tragic, accidental death of six-year-old Janie Rose. Mrs. Pike seldom speaks, blaming herself, while Mr. Pike is forced to come out of his long, comfortable silence. Then there is ten-year-old Simon, who is suddenly without a baby sister -- and without understanding why she's gone.
Those closest to this shattered family must learn to comfort them -- and confront their own private shadows of hidden grief. If time cannot draw them out of the dark, then love may be their only hope....
From the author of The New York Times phenomenal bestseller, The Accidental Tourist, comes a novel of love and courage. Little Janie Rose was dead. Each member of the Pike family dealt with grief in a different way, yet each had a wound that was raw and open. Perhaps time could heal, or love . . .
