Ellen Gilchrist

Sarah Conley

From National Book Award Winner Ellen Gilchrist, a pillar of Southern literature hailed by the Washington Post as “a national treasure,” comes a poignant novel about contemporary living and the sacrifices we make through the various stages of our life.“Gilchrist keeps you in the palm of her hand when she tells a story.” –Kirkus ReviewSarah Conley is a successful journalist and writer, having pursued her career path with tenacious passion. When her best friend Eugenie falls deathly ill, Sarah flies to Nashville for a final visit. While there, Sarah’s love for Jack, Eugenie’s husband, is rekindled, and it’s apparent he feels the same. He follows her to Paris, where she’s traveling to write a screenplay, and she becomes caught between her two wants. Will Sarah have to decide between the needs of her career and the needs of her heart?“The quirky cadences of Gilchrist’s prose and her witty dialogue are present here in abundance.” –Publishers Weekly
