How far would you go to protect your children? Would you do
it at the expense of your marriage? How far would you go to
For Susannah Delaney, the answers lie thousands of miles
away, off the northwest corner of Washington state. When
Susannah discovers her young son is being bullied and her
adolescent daughter is spinning out of control, she moves
them to remote Sounder Island in the San Juans to live off
the grid for a year. Susannah hopes to save her children
from the risks they've encountered at home, and to come to
terms with her own haunted past.
But the move threatens her marriage to the man she's loved
since childhood, and her very sense of self.
For Betty Pavalak, who first moved to Sounder to save her
own troubled marriage, the island has been a haven for more
than fifty years. But Betty also knows the guilt of living
with choices she made long ago and actions that cannot be
undone.The unlikely friendship between Susannah and Betty
ignites a journey of self-discovery for both women that
brings them both home to what they love most. A SIMPLE
THING moves beyond friendship, children, and marriages to
look deeply into what it means to love and forgive--yourself.
