Once in a blue moon, someone special inspires a story that has to be told. As I watched my Aunt Maxine’s journey with her donor heart, I knew that someday her courage and gratitude would undergo the magical transformation that allows an author to spin fact into fiction.
Aunt Maxine became the world’s second longest living recipient of a donor heart, and she lived every day as if it were a gift. You’ll find the best parts of her in Stars to Lead Me Home.
But Stars is much more than a story about borrowed hearts. It’s about marriages that fall apart and hope that keeps us going. It’s about finding home and cherishing friends who laugh with you, cry with you and grab the nearest shovel to start digging if you say, “Help. I’ve got a body on my hands.”
Maggie and her friends are people you know. They are the women next door you’d like to invite over for a cup of tea. They’re the women you gravitate toward at parties and take shopping and sit beside at church and share your secrets with. If you loved Driving Me Crazy you’ll love Stars to Lead Me Home. If you enjoyed Talk Before Sleep (Berg), The Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood (Wells) and Steel Magnolias ( Harling), you’ll enjoy this novel!
Early reviewers call Stars to Lead Me Home the “Must Read book of the year” and “the kind of book you can’t wait to share with your friends.” You can save forty percent by preordering.
