Sarah Miranda is a single mother, working hard for herself and daughter Tessie. But, when Tessie dies in a freak accident, Sarah decides to take a trip across the country to get some emotional distance from the tragedy. Along the way, she meets many people, including Jackson, a schoolteacher who becomes a friend and confidant. Sarah's journey forces her to confront her past, her feelings, and her inability to come to terms with Tessie's death. Ceilan has crafted a complex tale of love and forgiveness that forces readers to confront one of life's most devastating occurrences: the accidental death of a child. Readers will identify with Sarah from the start. And while the narrative lacks dramatic conflict at times, the relationship between Sarah and Jackson is strongly developed and believable.
