From the author of Happiness for Beginners comes an unforgettable love story about finding joy even in the darkest of circumstances.

In the hospital and forced to face the possibility that nothing will ever be the same again, Margaret must figure out how to move forward on her own terms while facing long-held family secrets, devastating heartbreak, and the idea that love might find her in the last place she would ever expect.
