Summary
  • "Twenty-four-year-old Natalie Taylor was leading a charmed life: she had a fulfilling job as a high school English teacher, a wonderful husband, Josh, a new house, and a baby on the way.

What follows is an incredibly powerful emotional journey, as Natalie calls upon resources she didn't even know she had in order to re-imagine and re-build a life for her and her son.
