What if you lose half of yourself? 150 pounds. What's life like now? What if you build fanciful chairs with wings and claws and dragon heads? What if you plant a garden and try roller derby? What if you finally begin the journey back to that terrible night at the river when you lost Sunshine and a schoolhouse that had been turned into a home? What if you fall in love?
Noelle Ryan works as a veterinary technician at a New England animal shelter, helping pets find homes. If only it were as easy to find one for herself. After discovering she can't have children-and watching her marriage fall apart after a shocking revelation by her husband-she feels as sad and lost as the strays she rescues.
