What happens when we no longer like the people we love? When Marietta Cline falls ill at her husband’s funeral she’s rescued by her childhood friend, Butter. The two of them traveled parallel paths for most of their lives, only to diverge wildly during the recent years of political division and turmoil. Old friends and family members are forced to come to terms with each other and their differences, while through it all, Marietta’s husband keeps watch, waiting.
“A deeply moving work of Southern fiction that will appeal to fans of Where the Crawdads Sing…a story to remember long after the last page is turned.” –Susan Wiggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author
