Summary
Charleen is a divorcée in her mid-thirties, eking out a living as a poet and part-time assistant for an obscure scientific journal. Although she is quick to count her blessings -- a son whom she loves, a blossoming relationship with a man, and friends who care about her -- Charleen wonders how her life turned out the way it did. Is she a failure? Or is she still struggling to escape the limited world of her childhood? When she returns home to attend her mother's wedding, Charleen is caught up in a series of unexpected -- and terrifying -- events

Summary
A trip home to Toronto for her mother's unexpected wedding gives 38-year-old poet Charleen Forrest the opportunity to muse on the people in her life. Her widowed mother, always unhappy and stingy with affection, is marrying at the age of 70. Charleen's former husband, Watson Forrest, is an academic who refused to grow up. Her son Seth is an emotionally stable and affectionate teenager. Judith, her sister, has the talent for kindness Charleen feels that she lacks, and Eugene is the man who wants to marry her. -- Description by: Nancy Pearl
