Book News: Random Acts of Kindness by Lisa Verge Higgins
A new novel of women’s friendship from the author of The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship and Friendship Makes the Heart Grow Fonder.
With the remnants of her past rattling in the trunk of her Chevy, Jenna Elliott abandons her Seattle home determined to start life anew. Her journey compels her to the door of two friends: Claire, an ex-Buddhist nun and cancer survivor, eager to escape her overbearing family for what may be her last chance to fulfill a dream; and Nicole, a professional Life Coach who can’t even control her own teenage son. But what starts out as an impulsive road trip soon becomes an inexorable journey to their past, as the women grapple with who they were, who they are, and the strange twists that have now set them on the road to their hometown of Pine Lake. There, Jenna discovers that her random act of kindness has rippled out into the world like a stone dropped into a deep pond, coming back to rock her life—and those of her friends—in ways they never expected.
‘Random Acts of Kindness’ will be released on March 25th 2014 by Grand Central Publishing.
