Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: The New York Times Bestseller from the beloved author of Bird by Bird and Traveling Mercies . Mattie Ryder is marvelously neurotic, well-intentioned, funny, religious, sarcastic, tender, angry, and broke. Her life at the moment is a wreck: her marriage has failed, her mother is failing, her house is rotting, her waist is expanding, her children are misbehaving, and she has a crush on a married man. Then she finds a small rubber blue shoe-nothing more than a gumball trinket-left behind by her father. For Mattie, it becomes a talisman-a chance to recognize the past for what it was, to see the future as she always hoped it could be, and to finally understand her family, herself, and the ever-unfolding mystery of her sweet, sad, and sometimes surprising life.
