“Susan Schoenberger takes us to the softer places of the heart where love—in all its forms and glory—transforms grief into grace.” —Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Driftwood Summer
Lucy never confessed her love to her best friend Harlan before he passed away. Two months after his funeral, she is haunted by the power of things left unsaid. But then she receives the first of his e-mails arranged to be sent after his death. So begins the year that everything changes—Lucy’s watershed year.
In an e-mail, Harlan says something that consumes her: He’s certain Lucy is destined for motherhood. In her grief, she suddenly rediscovers hope, journeying to Russia to adopt a four-year-old boy. Just as they’re learning to trust each other, they must face a threat that might shatter their fragile little family forever.
Susan Schoenberger’s breathtaking and powerful story of love, loss, redemption and what it means to be a mother will leave you in awe as Lucy, in the depths of her despair, somehow finds joy and embraces the beauty of second chances.
“With subtle humor and grace, A Watershed Year draws out the ways in which our closest relationships can be imperfect and yet continue to transform us.” —Juliette Fay, bestselling author of Shelter Me
