3.5 stars. Had to make a new shelf for this one, chick lit for older women, which was too long so just called it women's fiction. I don't read much in the romance line and thankfully it was not the main thrust of this book. My first Anna Quindlen, probably not my last.

It takes a while to get used to the slow pace, but I enjoyed this.

The writing by Quindlen remains sharp. Narrated by 3 people the daughter, best friend and husband this is a story of grief and healing. Everyone does this differently of course but it was interesting to compare. It is hard but then she just feels the need to tie it up maybe a bit too neatly. A year of mourning is essential.

Heartbreaking account of a family's devastation upon the sudden death of Annie, their wife/mother/best friend. Annie dies and everyone's life is upended. Her husband is at odds, and doesn't know how to take care of the children, leaving the older daughter to take on added responsibility for herself and her younger brothers. The best friend, a recovering addict, speaks to the daughter and tells her of the grief she feels over losing Annie. The daughter meets with the school therapist, and through her, starts the healing process. Throughout it all, the family and the friend hear Annie's voice in their heads, reminding them of her and how to behave.
A beautiful book about death and dealing with grief, and learning to heal.
