Reminiscent of Jonathan Tropper and Marisa de los Santos, a novel full of humor, heart, and hope for finding yourself where you least expect to Sean Doran has spent twenty years in third-world war zones and natural disaster areas, fully embracing what he'd always felt was his purpose: to do as much good as possible. But when burnout sets in, Sean finds himself reluctantly drawn home to Belham, Massachusetts, the setting of Juliette Fay's much-loved Shelter Me. There, he discovers that his steely elderly aunt, dramatic sister, and quirky nephew are having a little natural disaster of their own, and that midlife romance gets complicated fast when the high school queen bee is involved. But it's an old friend-the class wallflower-who has Sean wondering if his destiny is about to be rewritten all over again, in another perfect serving of a slice of life from the irresistible Fay.
