Description
The author of five New York Times Notable Books among her nine previous novels and story collections, Jill McCorkle "knocks it out of the park and into the cosmos" (Beth Henley) with this tenth book, her first novel in 17 years. Set in Fulton, North Carolina, and peopled by the residents, staff, and neighbors of Pine Haven retirement center—from 12-year-old Abby to 85-year-old Sadie—it is a splendid and profound journey of time and memory, filled with a sense of wonder at our capacity for self-discovery at any age.

"Like Flannery O'Connor, McCorkle's genius is to give us both philosophical speculation and a riveting narrative filled with unforgettable characters. Great writing, poignancy, humor, wisdom—all are in abundance here. Jill McCorkle is one of the South's greatest writers; she is also one of America's."—Ron Rash

"Jill is going to break your heart, but along the way make you glad you went with her. She has written a book that will haunt me for a long time—in the best way."—Dorothy Allison
