Summary
At forty, May Attaway is more at home with plants than people. Over the years, she's turned inward, finding pleasure in language, her work as a gardener, and keeping her neighbors at arm's length while keenly observing them. Granted some leave from her job, May is inspired to reconnect with four once-close friends. She knows they will never have a proper reunion, so she goes to each of them one-by-one -- choosing to bypass their perfectly cultivated online lives for their messy analog ones. A student of the classics, May considers her journey a female Odyssey. What might the world have had if, instead of waiting at home for Odysseus, Penelope had set out on an adventure of her own?
