Every once in a while we find an author who has the rare ability to tap directly into our fears, emotions and ultimate strengths. Linda Ann Rentschler, the author of Jitters, a novel of premarital stress that was made into a Lifetime® original movie, is one of these gifted writers. And her latest novel is nothing short of spectacular.
A faded photo…a treasured heirloom…a remembered recipe—it doesn’t take much to make Mary Sullivan dissolve into tears over the loss of her mother, even though it’s been five years since her death. Mary fills the aching void in her heart by caring for her teenage boys, Matthew and Brian, and her loving husband Ted who, although supportive during her initial bereavement, is finding it hard to understand why she hasn’t moved on. When Mary shares a tender memory with Cathy, a young waitress she meets at the local luncheonette, how could she know the encounter would soon change her life? For the sudden, tragic death of Cathy’s mother provides the now equally bereft pair with a common bond that deepens into friendship—and gives rise to hope as they begin to search for a way to talk to their moms…just one more time. What Mary and Cathy discover reveals a connection to this world and the next neither ever imagined possible.
