Book Overview
Along with naming me Marguerite after her favorite daisy, Mama gave me three things: Red hair that hasn't faded. A love of nature. And a belief that somewhere between heaven and earth there is magic. At age fifty-five, Meg's life is too filled with loss for her to remember what magic feels like. All she has left is a yard brimming with plants that are wilting in the scorching Iowa summer--and a bone-deep feeling that she's through with living. Meg has something else too: a bottle of mysterious pills, given to her years ago by an empathetic doctor. He promised that they would offer her dying mother a quick, painless end in exactly twenty days . Though her mother never needed them, Meg does. But a strange thing happens after Meg swallows the little green pearls . . . Now that she's decided to leave this world, Meg is rediscovering the joy in it. She sheds everything she no longer needs--possessions, regrets, guilt--and reconnects with those she cares for. Finally confronting the depth of her grief, she's learning that love runs deeper still. But is it too late to choose to stay? A book to hold against your heart long after the last page is turned. --New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs Twenty reminds us to live with our hearts wide open even when they've been broken, and how to love even when it hurts . -- Julie Cantrell , New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Perennials Written with such strong and heartfelt faith in the magic and power of never-ending love, it will renew your own. -- Judy Reene Singer, author of In the Shadow of Alabama
