Publisher's Summary

Only a year ago Isabel Moore was married, the object of adoration of her 10-year-old daughter, and thought she knew everything about her wild, extravagant, beloved best friend, Josie. But in that one short year: her husband moved out and rented his own apartment; her daughter grew into a moody insomniac; and Josie - impulsive, funny, secretive Josie - was killed behind the wheel in a single-car accident. As Isabel tries to make sense of this shattering loss and unravel the months leading up to Josie's death, she comes to understand the shifts, large and small, that can upend a friendship and an entire life. Heartbreaking and wryly funny, Days of Awe is a masterly exploration of marriage, motherhood, and the often surprising shape of new love.

Delightful and deeply emotional

I thoroughly enjoyed this book about losing one’s best friend. Full of self reflection, well developped characters and a deep appreciation of all the ways that we process grief. Lots about parenting, partnerships, teaching in school, and learning about oneself. Lauren has a great sense of humor & Luci Christian made the book come alive.
