Perfect for fans of Jennifer Weiner and Emily Giffin, this tender and heartwarming novel explores the trials of losing what matters mosta€”and how therea€™s always more than we can imagine left to find. Dear Libby, It occurs to me that you and your two children have been living with your mother fora€”Dear Lord!a€”two whole years, and Ia€™m writing to see if you'd like to be rescued. The letter comes out of the blue, and just in time for Libby Moran, whoa€”after the sudden death of her husband, Dannya€”went to stay with her hypercritical mother. Now her crazy Aunt Jean has offered Libby an escape: a job and a place to live on her farm in the Texas Hill Country. Before she can talk herself out of it, Libby is packing the minivan, grabbing the kids, and hitting the road. Life on Aunt Jeana€™s goat farm is both more wonderful and more mysterious than Libby could have imagined. Beyond the animals and the strenuous work, there is quieta€”deep, country quiet. But there is also a shaggy, gruff (though purportedly handsome, under all that hair) farm manager with a tragic home life, a formerly famous feed-store clerk who claims she can contact Danny a€œon the other side, a€ and the eccentric aunt Libby never really knew but who turns out to be exactly what shea€™s been looking for. And despite everything shea€™s lost, Libby soon realizes how much more shea€™s found. She hasna€™t just traded one kind of crazy for another: She may actually have found the place to bring her little familya€”and herselfa€”back to life.
