"What happens when you die?" Lewis asks. Marilyn hardly knows how to answer her son, or how to answer any of the questions suddenly triggered by her father's death. Her new friend Hilary is an unfailing support...but as the women grow closer, something completely unexpected shakes both families. Steeped in love, death, lust, childhood, parenthood, obsession - and the Wizard of Oz - this two-part novel follows Marilyn and Hilary through the most transforming six days of their lives.
