From the Back Cover

From the Pulitzer prize-winning author of Breathing Lessons and The Accidental Tourist

When eighteen-year-old Ian Bedloe pricks the bubble of his family's optimistic self-deception, his brother Danny drives into a wall, his sister-in-law falls apart, his parents age before his eyes. Consumed by guilt Ian finds the hope of forgiveness at the Church of the Second Chance, and leaves college to cope with the three children he has inherited and his own embarrassing new religion.

Twenty years on, Ian's prospects of a second chance are receding fast when, out of the heart of domesticity that has engulfed him, strides a figure who will bring him new life.
