Synopsis

There’s nothing about her life that doesn’t need a little work, so Melanie Davis thinks of herself as a “fixer-upper.”  Her history with men leaves her gun shy; her teenaged daughter can’t string two civil words together; her best friend Donna just found out she has a life-threatening illness.  When Donna also reveals a decades-old secret that still haunts her, Melanie makes it her mission to solve the mystery and reunite Donna with a precious link to her past – before it’s too late.  Along the way Melanie discovers with startling clarity the pricelessness of love and friendship.

With a finely-tuned emotional compass, Kate Bracy carries us through a trial-by-illness as funny as it is touching.  Her narrator, Melanie, comes to realize the enduring power of love – between men and women, between mothers and daughters, between friends.  Through her vivid, endearing characters Bracy creates a small-town world in northern New York where old loves rekindle, friendships prevail, and secret wounds are finally healed.  This debut novel will leave you with an awakened heart and a strong urge to send postcards to all the people you love.
