Fresh Hope For Shattered Lives
The day her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, Ann Maywood put her promising career on hold and raced to Maggie’s side. On some level, Ann knew the battle they faced would be a lonely one, and she was right. Other than frequent rants about the injustice of their mother’s illness, Ann's younger sister, Cass, stayed on the road and out of sight. While the brilliant baby of the family wanted to help, their mother stubbornly insisted Chuck remain in graduate school at Stanford.
Following Maggie’s death, Ann expects life to return to normal. But her career is in shambles, her lover has moved on, and the long illness has saddled her with monumental debt. To make matters worse, her irresponsible sister barely made it home in time for the funeral, but now Cass’s grief spirals out of control. While her brother might be a genius, Chuck refuses to fulfill the dreams their mother sacrificed everything to achieve. Relationships are tested, old dreams give way to new goals, lives are shattered and rebuilt in this emotional family saga, Ann questions whether her family can survive without the one person who always believed in them.
