"Katarina Bivald talks about her characters like you talk about your best friends. She gives her story absolutely everything she has."--Fredrik Backman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove

From New York Times bestselling author Katarina Bivald comes a charming tale of a ramshackle roadside motel: a heartwarming story of love, friendship, community, and the art of living, even when it's already too late.

The Pine Creek Motel has seen better days. Henny would call it charming, but she's always seen the best in things. Like now, when she's just met an untimely end crossing the road. She's not going to let a tiny thing like death stop her from living fully--not when her friends and family need her the most.

After the funeral is over, her body is buried, and the last casserole dish is empty, Henny is still around. She's not sure why, but she realizes she has one last opportunity to help her friends discover the happiness they once knew before they lose the motel and cabins they've cherished for years.

"Hopeful, heartening, and humane, this is the novel I needed to read right now."--J. Ryan Stradal, author of The Lager Queen of Minnesota and Kitchens of the Great Midwest

"Remarkable...unquestionably a page-turner and full of wisdom. A brave, unusual book, which powerfully portrays friendship and love." --Felicity Hayes-McCoy, author of The Library at the Edge of the World

Genre: Literary Fiction
