Three generations of women navigate the trials of love in all its forms in this poetic and sensitive novel set in Southwestern Montana.
At thirty-four, Tatum is haunted by past relationships that keep her from opening up to new ones. At sixty-two, Geneva is torn between her passion for life and her commitment to her institutionalized husband. Living together in Helena, Montana, both women are about to learn that there’s more to love than they’ve ever known before.
When a local fry cook takes an interest in Tatum, she knows that she should give him a chance. But while she struggles to overcome her impulse to sabotage romantic connections, he wonders whether he should persist or move on. Meanwhile, Tatum suddenly finds herself mourning the sister who once tormented her—and in charge of her young niece, Rachel. Now, together, all four of them are on a path of discovery between longing and love.
