Days of Awe

Knopf  2015

 

Only a year ago, Isabel Moore was married, the object of adoration of her ten-year-old daughter, and thought she knew everything about her wild, extravagant, beloved best friend, Josie. But in that one short year, her husband moved out and rented his own apartment; her daughter grew into a moody insomniac; and Josie—impulsive, funny, secretive Josie—was killed behind the wheel in a single-car accident. As Isabel tries to make sense of this shattering loss and unravel the months leading up to Josie's death, she comes to understand the shifts large and small that can upend a friendship and an entire life. Heartbreaking and wryly funny, Days of Awe is an exploration of marriage, motherhood, and the often surprising shape of new love.
