Publisher Description

A searing and luminous novel of a family's grief after unexpected loss, from the author of the huge bestseller Wild.

"Work hard. Do good. Be incredible!" is the advice Teresa Rae Wood shares with the listeners of her local radio show, Modern Pioneers, and the advice she strives to live by every day. She has fled a bad marriage and rebuilt a life with her children, Claire and Joshua, and their caring stepfather, Bruce. Their love for each other binds them as a family through the daily struggles of making ends meet. But when they received unexpected news that Teresa, only 38, is dying of cancer, their lives all begin to unravel and drift apart.

Strayed's intimate portraits of these fully human characters in a time of crisis show the varying truths of grief, forgiveness, and the beautiful terrors of learning how to keep living.

Cheryl Strayed is a brilliant writer and I would have loved this book if I had not just finished Wild. As it was I felt like I was going through the same story again - same small town upbringing, same young mother dying of cancer and going through the whole grieving process all over again with only slightly changed characters with slightly different stories for each so sorry, but it was all too much déjà vu same same for this reader. Ripped off.
