“Meredith spent over three years alone in her house — she was not isolated due to a pandemic, but this book put my feelings into words. She made me giggle, cry, and root for her. A story we need after such a numbing time. I feel alive again.”
— Tahlia Moe, Bound to Happen Books, Stevens Point, WI
The brilliant author of this brilliant book will have you laughing and crying as Meredith figures out how to rejoin the world after spending three years inside her house (Gillian McAllister, author of Wrong Place Wrong Time).
Meredith has a full-time remote job and her rescue cat Fred. Her best friend Sadie visits with her two children. There's her online support group, her jigsaw puzzles and favorite recipes, her beloved Emily Dickinson, the internet, the grocery delivery man. Also keeping her company are treacherous memories of an unstable childhood, the estrangement from her sister, and a traumatic event that had sent her reeling.
But something is about to change. Whether Meredith likes it or not, the world is coming to her door. Does she have the courage to overcome what's been keeping her inside all this time?
