"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 is becoming one of my must read authors, and I want to read everything she has currently written. I had previously read Allie and Bea and I loved it. When I saw she had a new book coming out, I knew I was going to give it a try.
I love how the author really makes you think when you are reading her stories. Although, this was very entertaining, this was so much more than that! This makes you really take a step back and think what do you really need in your life? What do you need in your life to make you happy? This is one of those stories that will stick with you much longer than just when you end that last page.
I will say this was a little slower start for me, but I highly recommend pushing though as it was worth it in the end.
Overall, this is another home run for me as I loved it.
