Publisher's Summary

Edie Richter Is Not Alone is a story about a woman's visceral confrontation with the fundamental meaning of humanity from award-winning author, Rebecca Handler.

Funny, acerbic Edie Richter is married, childless by choice and moving from San Francisco to Perth, Australia. She leaves behind a sister and mother still mourning the recent death of her father. Before the move, Edie and her husband were content, if socially awkward - given his career in oil and gas and her disinclination for small talk.

In Perth, Edie finds her self in a remarkably isolated yet verdant corner of the world, but Edie has a secret - she committed an unthinkable act that she can barely admit to herself. In some ways, the landscape mirrors her own complicated inner life and rather than escaping her past, Edie is increasingly forced to confront what she's done. Everybody, from the wildlife to her new neighbours, is keen to engage and Edie does her best to start fresh. But her relationship with her husband is fraying and the beautiful memories of her father are heartbreaking and impossible to stop. Something, in the end, has to give.

A fantastic read

Edie is honest and raw and real. She lets us in on all of the heartache and complexity of loss and letting go. The constant humor keeps an otherwise difficult topic just the right tone. Brilliant! 5 stars!!!
