A Watershed YearPaperback - 2011
Lucy never confessed her love to her best friend Harlan before he passed away. Two months after his funeral, she is haunted by the power of things left unsaid when she receives the first of his emails arranged to be sent after his death.
In an email, Harlan says something that consumes her-he's certain Lucy is destined for motherhood. In her grief, she suddenly rediscovers hope, journeying to Russia to adopt a four-year-old boy. When she meets her son Mat for the first time, she realizes he's also mending a wounded heart, and is just as lost as she is. Together, they learn to trust as each helps the other heal. But just as they're welcoming their new normal, Mat's father comes to America to reclaim his son, and reveals the truth about Mat's past that might shatter Lucy's fragile little family forever.
