Claire Petrenko always knew it was coming. Breast cancer has already claimed both her mother and her younger sister. Now, as she cobbles the pieces of her life back together, the devastating family legacy returns, and Claire receives the same diagnosis. So when her old friend Jenna Hogan suddenly shows up at her door-like a fairy godmother offering to grant a wish-Claire seizes the chance to revisit her past . . . and salvage her future.
What begins as an impulsive trip soon becomes an odyssey as the women cross the country, gathering friends as they make their way to their childhood home of Pine Lake. There, they discover that Jenna's random act of kindness has rippled out into the world like a stone dropped into a pond, surging back to transform all their lives in ways they never expected.
"Women readers won't wish to miss one mile of this rich, thoughtful, and sagacious novel. Men smart enough to want to know what women really think would be wise to dip a toe in Pine Lake."- Library Journal
A new novel of women's friendship from the author of The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship and Friendship Makes the Heart Grow Fonder.
