A novel by

 
 
Two years ago Nori Stedworth fled the conservative mentality of both her parents and Ten Commandments, Iowa for Manhattan. She loves her new life - until one devastating afternoon that culminates with the arrival of her mother - complete with luggage, craft supplies, and a crisis of her own.

Mom is suffering from middle-age meltdown. Her only identity is as a wife and mother, but her husband is a workaholic, and her daughter is halfway across the country. Grandchildren would give her life new purpose.

Nori copes by resurrecting Gertie, her childhood imaginary friend, whose acerbic wit pushes Nori out of her comfort zone and into the arms of a way too good-looking radio station manager - much to mom's dismay. She has other plans for her daughter. But when mom's quirky crafts land her on TV, life for both Stedworth women takes an unexpected turn, and they learn it's never too late to listen to your inner voice.

Craft project included.
