A New York Times Bestseller
In a sleepy seaside town in Maine, recently widowed Eveleth "Evvie" Drake rarely leaves her house nearly a year after her husband's death in a car crash. Everyone, even her best friend, Andy, thinks grief keeps her locked inside. In New York City Dean Tenney, former Major League pitcher and friend of Andy, is wrestling with the "yips": he can't throw straight anymore, and he can't figure out why. As the media storm heats up, an invitation from Andy seems like a chance to hit the reset button. When Dean moves into an apartment at the back of Evvie's house, they make a deal: Dean won't ask about her late husband, and she won't ask about Dean's baseball career . . .
