The story of a woman who loves her house so much that
she'll do just about anything to keep it.
Ellen Flanagan has two precious girls to raise, a cozy
neighborhood coffee shop to run, terrific friends, and a
sexy husband. She adores her house, a yellow Cape Cod
filled with quirky antiques, beloved nooks and dents, and
a million memories. But now, at forty-four, she's about to
lose it all.
After eighteen roller-coaster years of marriage, Ellen's
husband, Sam--who's charismatic, spontaneous, and utterly
irresponsible--has disappointed her in more ways than she
can live with, and they're getting divorced. Her daughters
are miserable about losing their daddy. Worst of all, the
house that Ellen loves with all her heart must now be
Ellen's life is further complicated by a lovely and
unexpected relationship with the husband of the shrewish,
social-climbing woman who has purchased the house. Add to
that the confusion over how she really feels about her
almost-ex-husband, and you have the makings of a delicious
novel about what matters most in the end . . .
Set in the gorgeous surroundings of Portland, Oregon,
Kathleen McCleary's funny, poignant, curl-up-and-read
debut strikes a deep emotional chord and explores the very
notion of what makes a house a home.
