Publisher's Summary

In her exquisite new novel, acclaimed author Cathie Pelletier presents a witty and refreshingly candid portrait of grief, intergenerational conflict, and the impact one person can have on those he loved.

Bixley, Maine: One year after Henry Munroe's fatal heart attack at age 41, his doting parents, prudish wife, rebellious son, and wayward brother are still reeling. So is Evie Cooper, a bartender, self-proclaimed "spiritual portraitist", and Henry's former mistress. While his widow, Jeanie, struggles with the betrayal, Henry's overbearing mother is making plans to hold a memorial service. As the date of the tribute draws closer and these worlds threaten to collide, the Munroes grapple with the frailty of their own lives and the knowledge that love is all that matters.

With her trademark wry wit and wisdom, Cathie Pelletier has crafted an elegant and surprisingly uplifiting portrait of the many strange and inspiring forms that grief can take in its journey toward healing.

What the Critics Say

Nobody walks the knife-edge of hilarity and heartbreak more confidently than Pelletier." (Richard Russo)

"Narrator Hillary Huber captures every every aspect of the grieving process, as depicted by Pelletier. Huber shines portraying the multigenerational characters, most significantly, Henry's widow, as they react to the discovery of Henry's secret life. Huber delivers the surprises in the same even tone and provides pauses at just the right spots to let the emotional truths to sink in. The story of the year after Henry's passing will stay with listeners for days after listening." (AudioFile)
