Notes:
Willa Drake can count on one hand the defining moments of her life: when she was eleven and her mother disappeared, being proposed to at twenty-one, the accident that would make her a widow at forty-one. At each of these moments, Willa ended up on a path laid out for her by others. So when she receives a phone call telling her that her son's ex-girlfriend has been shot and needs her help, she drops everything and flies across the country. The spur-of-the moment decision to look after this woman - and her nine-year-old daughter, and her dog - will lead Willa into uncharted territory. Surrounded by new and surprising neighbours, she is plunged into the rituals that make a community, and takes pleasure in the most unexpected things. A bittersweet novel of hope and regret, fulfilment and renewal, Clock Dance brings us the everyday life of a woman who decides it's never too late to change direction, and choose your own path.

Two defining moments for Willa, 1. Age 11 her tempestuous mother vanished overnight, 2. widowed at 41 when her husband dies in a road rage crash. She gave up her degree when she married him, has 2 sons who she is not close to, pursuing a life to please others. Then, a phone call out of the blue calls her to Baltimore to look after Denise and her daughter Cheryl. She becomes part of the community, is needed, wanted and valued. Don't want to spoil the ending but she makes a decision to change her life. Beautifully, sensitively written and shows it's never to late to change your path in life and make your own choice.
