Its 1989. Thanksgiving is just around the corner. A handful of mismatched folks--some country people, some far-flung, fancy people--discover they have one thing in common: someone they know is sick, real sick, dying sick.

Their paths cross as they go to Solace, a local hospice.August Early has never set foot in a hospital before. Maggie Dulé packs a bag despite her vow never to return to the Pineys again. Burnice Kling, R.N., is fixing to fire her patient, a cantankerous old cauliflower of a woman and mother to an estranged daughter named Maggie. Meanwhile Cadence Greevey passes among them unnoticed. Shes a big-little girl whose thinking hasnt kept up with her growing.

Her mamas ailing and theres no one home to help.Suddenly they find themselves functioning as caregivers, bedside improvisers, doing all they can to beat back death or hurry him on about his business.Through chapters that interweave points of view--funny-sad and sad-funny--multiple stories become one. Steeped in the rich flavor of the Appalachians, this debut novel offers comfort in comfortless times, illuminating the altered states of shock and clarity that visit us as our loved (and hated) ones pass from this world to the next.
