What would you risk to do the right thing?

Though Matthew and Amelia were once in love and planning to raise a family together, they are now professional enemies. To Amelia, whose life has been dedicated to charity, Matthew's job as a high-powered executive has turned him into a heartless person who doesn't care about anything but money.

And yet, on a frigid night, while walking to his upscale Philadelphia loft, Matthew finds himself on a desolate bridge, face-to-face with a boy screaming for help. Homeless for most of his life, ten-year-old Danny is as streetwise as he is world-weary, and his desperation to save his three-year-old sister makes him every bit the match for the cynical executive. Before long, Matthew's unwilling involvement with Danny has set off a chain of events that draws in Amelia and even their old college friend, Ben -- and alters all of their lives irrevocably.

Dazzlingly written, with a riveting story that will resonate with book clubs and readers everywhere, Lisa Tucker's The Cure for Modern Life is a smart, humorous, big-hearted morality tale about the way we live now and what it means in the twenty-first century to be responsible, to care about other people, and to do the right thing.
