From the book jacket. She was the thread with which their tapestry was woven. With a group of women as diverse as the ladies of Brightwood Trace, you might not think them to be close. There's Julianne, a nurse with an unsettling psychic ability that allows her to literally feel what her patients feel; Andrea, a strong fortress sheltering a faltering core; Ginger a mother torn between being a stay-at-home mom and following her career aspirations; and Iona, the oldest, whose feisty, no-nonsense attitude disarms even the toughest of the tough. Not exactly the ingredients for the most cohesive cocktail...until you add Paisley, the liveliest and friendliest of the clan, who breathed life into them all. But when their glowing leader falls ill with cancer, it's up to these women to do what Paisley has done for them since the beginning: lift her up. Overcoming and accepting the inevitability of loss, they draw closer together than ever, finding the strength to embrace and cherish their lives with acceptance, gratitude, and most important, love. Finally living with the vigor that Paisley has shown them from the start, they are able to see their lives in a new light, while learning to say goodbye to the brightest star they've ever known. Over the course of just three months, these four women will undergo a magnificent transformation that leaves nobody unchanged.
