Days of Awe

Only a year ago, Isabel Moore was mar­ried, the object of ado­ra­tion of her ten-year-old daugh­ter, and thought she knew every­thing about her wild, extrav­a­gant, beloved best friend, Josie. But in that one short year, her hus­band moved out and rent­ed his own apart­ment; her daugh­ter grew into a moody insom­ni­ac; and Josie — impul­sive, fun­ny, secre­tive Josie — was killed behind the wheel in a sin­gle-car acci­dent. As Isabel tries to make sense of this shat­ter­ing loss and unrav­el the months lead­ing up to Josie’s death, she comes to under­stand the shifts large and small that can upend a friend­ship and an entire life. Heart­break­ing and wry­ly fun­ny, Days of Awe is an explo­ration of mar­riage, moth­er­hood, and the often sur­pris­ing shape of new love.
