In this absorbing new novel, Jenn Crowell plumbs the depths of long-distance love and emotional healing with her trademark lyricism and wit.
Best friends Gloria and Jascha forged a tight bond over their mutual experiences of grief, but kept their mutual attraction at bay out of respect for their late spouses. When Gloria suffers a terrifying medical scare on the first anniversary of her husband's death, however, Jascha makes a huge leap and flies from London to Washington, D.C. to profess his love for her.
Thrilled by his confession, Gloria impulsively invites Jascha to move in with her and her young son. What begins as domestic bliss soon gives way to Jascha's frightening descent into PTSD that will push the couple to the brink of breakup and breakdown. Can they both face their demons before it's too late?
