Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Avie Goss is a 'change baby', born to her mother late in life, almost a generation after her two siblings. When her mother nearly dies in a house fire, Avie returns to the home she abandoned after college to look after her. But her motives are not completely altruistic; Avie also needs a break from her complicated and disastrous love-life. At the age of twenty-four, she finds it difficult at first to adjust from being the spoiled baby of the family to principal caretaker, but soon rises to the challenge. Avie decides to stay longer than planned and surprises herself by finding her rural home town is not without its charms; none more so than the enigmatic newcomer, Saul. Through a tangled web of relationships - with her family, her mother's oldest friend, and Avie's married ex-lover - she comes upon a new understanding of herself and her place within her ancestral legacy. As she better learns who she is as a daughter, friend, and lover, she must decide what kind of person she wants to be, and how she will embark on her future.
