Penguin Putnam
Karen Sommerfield has been hiding from the big questions of her life-the emotional distance in her marriage, her inability to have children, and her bout with cancer. Getting lost in her high powered career provides the sense of purpose she yearns for. Until the day she's downsized out of her job and the doctor tells her the cancer may be back. It's a double blow that would send anyone reeling. It also sends Karen to Grandma Rose's old farm, where her sister has made a seemingly perfect life. Opening herself to the unexpected, Karen finds a lonely child in need of nurturing and insights into her family's past. And in the quiet of the Missouri Ozarks, she begins to discover the joy to make her life complete.

Baker & Taylor
After Karen Sommerfield is suddenly forced to deal with the threat of cancer at the same time her company downsizes her, she returns to the rural Missouri Ozarks and her grandmother's old farm on an odyssey to find herself.
