At 31 years old, Casey Peabody is mourning the unexpected death of her mother, and recovering from a bad breakup. She is waiting tables in Harvard Square and working on finishing a novel she’s been writing for six years. She is broke, in debt, and living in a moldy room next to a garage owned by a friend of her brother. In spite of all this, she is determined to hang on to her dream of living a creative life. She falls in love with two very different men, finishes her novel, and must navigate crises in all aspects of her life. I listened to this and loved it.
