"As Jay lies in a coma, his young wife, Lainey, is the only one who believes he will ever recover. When his doctors try to reach him, Jay does not respond. Yet Lainey believes he knows when she is there, and is stimulated by the gifts of ordinary life she brings him: sweet-smelling flowers, his children's drawings, his own softly textured shirt. As Lainey struggles to keep believing and to keep the family going, she goes deeper into herself, looking for solace, for strength, and for understanding. Overburdened, distracted, depressed yet determined, she feels desperate only at those times when her faith falters." "It is then that she is sustained by her friendships. Alice, her next-door neighbor, is strong when Lainey cannot be, though she has problems and secret fears of her own. And the spirit of Evie, a woman from the 1940s who used to live in Lainey's house, now takes up a kind of residence again, offering advice and philosophy from a simpler time."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This is the sometimes sad, sometimes funny, but always lyrical story of Lainey and her unshakeable belief that her husband, Jay, will awake from the coma caused by a freak accident. A wonderfully satisfying read from an author who has become a firm favorite for her endless store of compassionate and loveable characters.
