A poignant novel about a woman who survives breast cancer, only to struggle with what comes next: living.
After five cancer-free years, April Newton should be celebrating, but instead she’s restless. She feels her husband slipping away, and though the spectacular, stylish house he’s building for her should be a fresh start, April finds herself wanting something more. As their move-in date approaches, she becomes obsessed with winning the right to buy the last bungalow in Redondo Beach, convinced that the quirky, lived-in little house represents comfort, completeness-everything she is missing in her life. And though her quest for the bungalow will take some surprising twists, it may put back together the pieces of her heart.
