In this exquisite, emotionally rich novel, New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Berg offers a deeply satisfying story about the bonds of love and the balm of friendship. A young man named Jay lies in a coma after suffering a freak accident, and his wife, Lainey, is the only one who believes he will recover.

When Lainey’s faith in his recovery falters, she is sustained by two women, Alice and Evie, who teach her about the endurance of friendship—and the genuine power of hope. Filled with beautiful writing and truths about life, Range of Motion is hard to put down and impossible to forget.

From the Back Cover:

He walked past a building, and a huge chunk of ice fell off the roof, and it hit him in the head. This is Chaplinesque, right? People start to laugh when I tell them . . . In this exquisite novel, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Pull of the Moon, Jay Berman lingers in a coma after a sudden, shattering accident. His wife, Lainey, thinks that he'll recover -- though sometimes she fears she's the only one who believes. She sits at his side as he lies motionless. Determined to reach him, she offers reminders of the ordinary life they shared: sweet-smelling flowers, his soft-textured shirt, spices from their kitchen. And through this ordeal, she is sustained by two women who will teach her about the endurance of friendship -- and the genuine power of hope.
