Description

An "intimate, lovely novel, most of whose concerns swirl about the pain and joys of motherhood," from the New York Times–bestselling author of Faithful (People).
Rae Perry has been in love with Jessup since high school. Two weeks before her eighteenth birthday, they ran away from Boston together and have been moving ever since—five states in seven years. Now they are in Southern California in what they call "earthquake weather," a time when anything can happen, and Jessup is restless again. This time, Rae fears, he plans to leave without her.
Lila Grey is a fortune-teller. More than a quarter century ago, on a cold and icy night in New York City, she gave birth to a daughter she never saw again. Lila is determined to find her lost child, even if it means an end to her happy life with Richard, the loving husband she refuses to let into her past.
It is Lila who tells Rae she is pregnant—but the other symbol she reads in Rae's tea leaves, she refuses to reveal. From that moment forward, their fates are inextricably linked. While Rae searches for the strength to navigate an uncertain future alone, Lila sets out to resolve her history once and for all.
This luminous novel, a New York Times Notable Book, is an enthralling tribute to the profound mysteries of motherhood and childbirth from a writer who, in the words of Amy Tan, "takes seemingly ordinary lives and lets us see and feel extraordinary things."
