Summary
After she's diagnosed with breast cancer, forty-nine-year-old Tess sets forth on a mission to complete her to do list before, what she's sure is, her impending death. She needs to make peace with her estranged sister, Birdie, scatter her mother's long kept ashes, rescue her daughter, Haddie, from the grip of an eating disorder, guide her teenage son, Henry, through a bumpy adolescence, and reignite the spark in her almost thirty year marriage to her husband Will. Tess is aided on her quest by narrator, Grace, who lends the story its most brilliant elements: subtle magical realism and deep psychological complexity. Is Grace an imaginary friend, guardian angel, or a part of Tess that knows better than she?
