Abstract:

How much change can one summer bring? If you're Caddie Winger--thirty-two years old, still living with her grandmother and giving piano lessons to neighborhood children--one summer can make the whole world look different. Caddie's mother died when she was nine, and her grandmother raised her. Now their roles are reversed, and it's Caddie who takes care of Nana. When her grandmother breaks a leg and insists on going into a convalescent home, Caddie finds herself being pulled out of her comfy, self-made nest. Living alone for the first time since college, she uncovers some startling truths from her past.
