Publisher's Summary

From New York Times bestselling author Catherine Ryan Hyde comes a bittersweet novel about healing old wounds and finding a new place to call home…

Roseanna Chaldecott spent her life as a high-powered lawyer in Manhattan. But when her best friend and law partner dies suddenly, something snaps. Unsure of her future, Roseanna heads upstate on one tank of gas and with no plans to return.

In the foothills of the Adirondacks, Roseanna discovers the perfect hideout in a ramshackle farm. Its seventy-six acres are rich with possibilities and full of surprises, including a mother and daughter squatting on the property. Although company is the last thing Roseanna wants, she reluctantly lets them stay.

Roseanna and the young girl begin sculpting junk found around the farm into zoo animals, drawing more newcomers - including her estranged son, Lance. He pleads with Roseanna to return to the city, but she’s finally discovered where she belongs. It may not provide the solitude she originally sought, but her heart has found room for much more.

Catherine Ryan Hyde has done it again!

From start to finish I never put this book down! Catherine Ryan Hyde never ceases to amaze me with her very own style of tugging at heartstrings. Each and every work of art that she has written leaves me with a deeper understanding of the human heart. I highly recommend this book ! You will not be disappointed!

Love love love Catherine Ryan Hyde!

As with all of Catherine Ryan Hyde‘s books, it is it’s own unique story, no theme writer, her. This was funny, realistic in human imperfectness, warm, heartfelt . I thoroughly enjoyed The audio version.

Lost and Found

A reminder that, when we spend our lives accumulating "stuff" we can leave behind the things that are really important. This is a story of one such person, Rosanna who was awoken by a great loss but, through that loss she found what is really important.

Just the best!!

Love this book!! When a successful attorney loses her best friend and law partner unexpectedly, she realized that hard work, long hours and expensive cars are not what brings true happiness. Quite by accident, she discovers a piece of Heaven in a rundown house in a rural area outside the City. This book reminded me of the important things in life and the story is told as only this author can do it! The narration is PERFECT for this story. Don’t miss this one!!
