A NoveleBook - 2009
In the winter of 1990, Helen Hansen--counselor, wife, and mother in the prime of her life--is diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. The following August, Helen, her husband, Elliott, and their daughter, Abby, a freshman in college, take a trip to northern New Hampshire, where Helen will be able to say goodbye to a lifetime of friends. Ensconced in a historic resort in the White Mountains--a place where afternoon cocktails are served on the veranda and men are expected to wear jackets after six--the Hansens and their guests must improvise their own rituals of remembrance and reconnection.
