“A book to hold against your heart long after the last page is turned.” —New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs This warm and heartfelt novel will appeal to avid followers of Reese’s Book Club picks. Twenty captures the provocative moral questions presented in the works of Jodi Picoult but with a hint of mystical wonder. What happens when you decide to go…right when you finally learn how to live again…. “Along with naming me Marguerite after her favorite daisy, Mama gave me three things: Red hair that hasn’t faded. A love of nature. And a belief that somewhere between heaven and earth there is magic.” At age fifty-five, Meg’s life is too filled with loss for her to remember what magic feels like. All she has left is a yard brimming with plants that are wilting in the scorching Iowa summer—and a bone-deep feeling that she’s through with living. Meg has something else too: a bottle of mysterious pills, given to her years ago by an empathetic doctor. He promised that they would offer her dying mother a quick, painless end in exactly twenty days. Though her mother never needed them, Meg does. But a strange thing happens after Meg swallows the little green pearls . . . Now that she’s decided to leave this world, Meg is rediscovering the joy in it. She sheds everything she no longer needs—possessions, regrets, guilt—and reconnects with those she cares for. Finally confronting the depth of her grief, she’s learning that love runs deeper still. But is it too late to choose to stay? “Twenty reminds us to live with our hearts wide open even when they’ve been broken, and how to love even when it hurts.” —Julie Cantrell, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Perennials “Written with such strong and heartfelt faith in the magic and power of never-ending love, it will renew your own.” —Judy Reene Singer, author of In the Shadow of Alabama
