About The Book

In the rare moments when Leigh Adelman has time to consider her chaotic life, it takes her breath away: there's her 14 year-old son Isaac, fierce and vulnerable; eight-year-old Jane, wise, tart-tongued and practical; baby Daisy, her joyful last child; and reasonable, patient Simon, a devoted husband and father.
Leigh's suburban New York life is 14 years distant from her first love. It had been electric, an adventure that produced the divine gift of Isaac -- and taught her that even all-consuming passion doesn't mean happily ever after. But that intense, hopeful time had slowly receded to a distant corner of her heart...until the summer morning when Fowler popped back into her life.
Cautiously, Leigh walks into a Manhattan hotel bar, unfinished business compelling her to see the brilliant, uncompromising Fowler. And as soon as she hears his voice she understands that she has always loved him. But this rendezvous turns out to be less about first love than it is about a last chance. For it is clear that Fowler is dying.
Honest, moving and utterly authentic, Every Day is about testing the boundaries of love, and living with the often messy consequences. For anyone who has ever daydreamed about the past, or silently wondered what if, this unforgettable novel rings with one essential truth: the toughest choices yield the most unexpected rewards.
