Summary Lilly Bloom is a college graduate with a degree in English and few job prospects, even in New York City. When she resorts to telling fortunes in a Manhattan restaurant, she finds she has a knack for intuitively picking up the details of other people's lives and astounding them with what she knows. Here she meets Matt, a friendly, out-of-town veterinarian, and when she attempts to tell his fortune, he becomes the love of her life. Matt and Lilly plan to marry, so Matt brings his teenage daughter, Dinah, to New York City to meet his bride. Suddenly, a tragic accident occurs, and the man they both love dies.
Now Lilly is taking Dinah to Pittsburgh to live with Matt's mother, Dell, the hardworking grandmother Dinah barely knows. After that, Lilly intends to drive madly across the country, hoping to stay just ahead of her grief. But the connections between the women will stop her from moving on so easily. Their shared love for Matt has forever tangled, knotted together, and inextricably intertwined their lives. What they have to give each other, and what they need to take, will astonish you and touch your heart.
