A story from debut author Abby Fabiaschi that is "as absorbing as it is illuminating, and as witty as it is heartbreaking."

Maddy is a devoted stay-at-home wife and mother, host of excellent parties, giver of thoughtful gifts, and bestower of a searingly perceptive piece of advice or two. She is the cornerstone of her family, a true matriarch...until she commits suicide, leaving her husband Brady and teenage daughter Eve heartbroken and reeling, wondering what happened. How could the exuberant, exacting woman they loved disappear so abruptly, seemingly without reason, from their lives? How they can possibly continue without her? As they sift through details of her last days, trying to understand the woman they thought they knew, Brady and Eve are forced to come to terms with unsettling truths.

Maddy, however, isn’t ready to leave her family forever. Watching from beyond, she tries to find the perfect replacement for herself. Along comes Rory: pretty, caring, and spontaneous, with just the right bit of edge...but who also harbors a tragedy of her own. Will the mystery of Maddy ever come to rest? And can her family make peace with their history and begin to heal?

Fabulous book

I cried through the last 50 pages. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There were times I was so mad at Maddy through so much of this book. I really liked how it all came out in the end. I never had any idea of how it would end! I really loved the 10 years later wrap up. That was really well done, and I will be recommending this to anyone who hasn’t read it.

I’m going to read it twice!

This book gives so much perspective on life. Looking through all three of the characters eyes through this journey, especially maddy, is eye opening. This book makes you appreciate life in the most simple and basic ways & helped to heal my heart along with this family.
