9781455572854: Random Acts of Kindness

Claire Petrenko always knew it was coming. Breast cancer has already claimed both her mother and her younger sister. Now, as she cobbles the pieces of her life back together, the devastating family legacy returns, and Claire receives the same diagnosis. So when her old friend Jenna Hogan suddenly shows up at her door-like a fairy godmother offering to grant a wish-Claire seizes the chance to revisit her past . . . and salvage her future.

What begins as an impulsive trip soon becomes an odyssey as the women cross the country, gathering friends as they make their way to their childhood home of Pine Lake. There, they discover that Jenna's random act of kindness has rippled out into the world like a stone dropped into a pond, surging back to transform all their lives in ways they never expected.

About the Author:

While studying for her Ph.D. in chemistry, Lisa Verge Higgins wrote and sold her first novel. Now an author of fifteen books, this opera-loving mother of three has been twice named to Barnes & Noble's General Fiction Forum for their top twenty novels of the year. Her stories about women's lives and women's friendships have been described by reviewers as "joyous, uplifting life lessons" that "inspire us to focus on what's really important in our lives." When not writing stories, Lisa works as a reviewer for The New York Journal of Books. She currently lives in New Jersey with her husband and their three teenage daughters, who never fail to make life interesting.

Review:

"Women readers won't wish to miss one mile of this rich, thoughtful, and sagacious novel. Men smart enough to want to know what women really think would be wise to dip a toe in Pine Lake."―Library Journal

"Top Pick! Higgins' latest wonderful, page-turning novel further confirms her status as a master storyteller. Her narrative beautifully chronicles the relationships and adventures of former friends with a heady mix of belly-deep laughter, tears and empathy."―RT Book Reviews

"Fans of chick lit will enjoy this humorous and uplifting homage to good friendships and a variety of Americana."―Booklist

"Higgins writes with grace and humor, reminding us to hold tight to the ones we love."―Luanne Rice, New York Times bestselling author of The Deep Blue Sea for Beginners on The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship

"The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship is a lovely novel with moments of deeply moving insight into what it means to be a mother, a wife, and a friend. Read it and share it with your own friends-you'll be glad you did!"―Nancy Thayer, New York Times bestselling author of Beachcombers on The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship

"Full of humor, love, and life lessons, this is an uplifting and satisfying novel that lingers long after the last page."―Elizabeth Noble, bestselling author of The Reading Group and The Girl Next Door on The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship
