The Way Life Should BeLarge Print - 2016
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train comes a novel of self-discovery and second chances.
Angela is single in New York City, stuck in a job she hates. She inherited a flair for Italian cooking from her grandmother, but she never seems to have the time for it.
On a hope and a chance, Angela decides to pack it all up and move to Maine, finding motivation in the dating profile of a handsome sailor who loves dogs and Italian food. But her new home isn't quite matching up with the fantasy. Far from everything familiar, Angela begins to rebuild her life from the ground up and, in the process, realizes there's really no such thing as the way life should be.
