From the New York Times bestselling author of How to Walk Away and Things You Save in a Fire

Helen Carpenter can''t quite seem to bounce back. Newly divorced at thirty-two, her life has fallen apart beyond her ability to put it together again. So when her annoying younger brother, Duncan, convinces her to sign up for a hardcore wilderness survival course in the backwoods of Wyoming-she hopes it''ll be exactly what she needs.
