Ellen Cooney returns to Coffee House Press after almost 20 years with a warm, contemplative novel full of refreshingly modern, spirituality, the first in a series of three novels Ellen has planned about working women. Ellen has an established readership and her books appeal to a wide audience, both literary and commercial. Ellen is a winning and enthusiastic advocate for her own work and for CHP, and is eager to do events in New England and along the East Coast, at bookstores and libraries. Interest in reclaiming spirituality has been skyrocketing in recent years. This book will appeal to readers of Brene Brown, Glennon Doyle, and Elizabeth Gilbert as well as novelists like Kent Haruf, Anne Tyler, Jane Hamilton, and Elizabeth Strout.
