The Wide Smiles of Girls

A novel by

Sisters March and Mae Wallace are two years apart, but worlds away from being anything alike. Mae Wallace is the dependable, older sister who weighs her words before she speaks, and sees the world as a project to be saved. March, happily overweight and charismatic, has the world on a string. But a tragic accident tears them apart, and all of a sudden the vibrant March is injured and Mae bears the guilt. Relocated to South Carolina where March undergoes therapy, Mae befriends a local artist still grieving his wife's death. As the two draw closer, their pain turns into a friendship. But Mae Wallace must free herself from guilt if she's ever to love, and March must grapple with the loss of her former self, and accept her new realities.

This novel is a poignant ode to the bond of two sisters, the grief we sometimes have to overcome, and the redemptive power of love that can make us smile again.
