Описание

In idyllic Tucker, Vermont, life moves lazily along for Paige Pfeiffer. When her best friend's suicide shatters her complacency, however, Paige is sent reeling and her comfortable world is gone for good. As she struggles with her grief, she is also forced to care for the friend's adopted baby daughter. Her only hope is that some sense of normalcy will return in time.

But with tragedy also comes unexpected joys. A blossoming romance with the head of a private school fills Paige's faltering life with hope and offers her a love that she never thought possible. She explores how one can find meaning in life, even in the aftermath of death.

Barbara Delinsky turns her storytelling skills to this inspiring tale of loss, love, and growth. Listeners can relate as the everyday people in her stories work to overcome seemingly impossible challenges, while finding strength in family, friends, and new life and love.

A Simon & Schuster audio production.

    In the idyllic little town of Tucker, Vermont, life flows at a slower pace for everyone. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the lives of thirty-nine-year-old pediatrician Paige Pfeiffer and her colleagues. However when Mara O'Neill, Paige's medical partner and best friend since college, inexplicably takes her own life, the consequences of that one irrevocable act shatters Paige's peaceful life, and throws the lives of the three other doctors who practiced with her into absolute chaos. For Angie Bigelow, grieving Mara's death becomes the final straw in the disintegration of her once well-organized - and ostensibly happy - home and marriage. Peter Grace, whose relationship with Mara was much more complicated than he admits publicly, is left with a sense of desolation at her death. He has difficulty coping with his feelings of grief and feels a growing discontentment with life; a feeling which has its roots in his youth. Paige deals with her own feelings of loss and deep sadness by temporarily caring for Mara's newly-adopted baby daughter. As she slowly comes to terms with her grief, Paige clings to the hope that, in due time, she'll understand why Mara chose to end her life. And that her orderly life will eventually return. What Paige hadn't counted on were the unexpected pleasures that often come with change. In the wake of such a tragedy, Paige never realized that she would ultimately discover true meaning and purpose in her own life; including the touch of a man who offers Paige things she never thought she wanted. But before she can allow herself to fully embrace a future she never imagined, Paige must let go of the past and learn to trust her new found happiness. Overall, I very much enjoyed reading this book. It was a relatively quick read for me, and was very well-written. The story featured a wide variety of well-developed characters, and was written with a true understanding of the complexities of human nature and the intricacies of relationships. This wasn't necessarily my favorite book by Barbara Delinsky, but it certainly was well worth reading anyway. I give Suddenly an A!

    Suddenly by Barbara DelinskyThis book is about a medical practice with 4 doctors in Tucker, VT. They each have and share patients.One is preparing to adopt a baby but one days others learn of her death-sitting in her car in the closed garage. Others try to put the pieces together to solve her death.The baby arrives and Paige steps in but she doesn't want a child. Paige has a sexual mate that teaches at the girls academy. There are so many twists and turns to this book, it's fascinating reading about them all.The other people also have chapters of their own and the troubles they experience with the death, how it not only effects their medical practice but their personal lives.Didn't see this ending happening, wow!I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
