About How Lucky You Are
In the tradition of Emily Giffin and Marisa de los Santos comes an engaging and moving novel about three women struggling with signs of strain in their longtime friendship.
Waverly, who’s always been the group’s anchor, runs a cozy bakery but worries each month about her mounting debt. Kate is married to a man who’s on track to be the next governor of Virginia, but the larger questions brewing in their future are unsettling her. Stay-at-home mom Amy has a perfect life on paper, but as the horrific secret she’s keeping from her friends threatens to reveal itself, she panics.
As life’s pressures build all around them, Waverly knows she has some big decisions to make. In doing so, she will discover that the lines between loyalty and betrayal can become blurred, happy endings aren’t always clear-cut, and sometimes you have to risk everything to gain the life you deserve.
With its sensitive depiction of important issues, including spousal abuse, HOW LUCKY YOU ARE will spark interesting discussions among women’s reading groups and book clubs.
