Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Lucy McVie is a thirtysomething college professor mourning the loss of her best friend, Harlan. Two months after his funeral, she receives the first of several e-mails from him, arranged to be sent after his death. It is through these messages that Lucy truly learns of Harlan's deep love for her and her importance in his life. With his encouragement from beyond, she decides to pursue her dream of motherhood. Lucy finds Yulia, who runs an agency that arranges adoptions from Russia. Yulia knows of four-year-old Azamat, nicknamed Mat, who has been abandoned by his father and needs a home. As Lucy navigates the political and economic intricacies of foreign adoption, she becomes increasingly obsessed with the need to care for Mat. Lucy struggles to raise Mat while dealing with heartbreaking grief, and when Mat's father returns to claim him, she must find the strength to save her family. Her story is one of loss and healing, what it means to be a mother, and the importance of moving forward. —Carol Gladstein


"A well-told tale of life and death and the way, when we least expect it, love can encompass us roundabout...This is a brave and moving novel." —Bret Lott, bestselling author of the Oprah Book Club Selection Jewel

"Susan Schoenberger takes us to the softer places of the heart where love in all its forms and glory transforms grief into grace." —Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Driftwood Summer

"With subtle humor and grace, A Watershed Year draws out the ways in which our closest relationships can be imperfect and yet continue to transform us." —Juliette Fay, bestselling author of Shelter Me

"Thoughtful and uplifting reading of the power of a mother and family, A Watershed Year is an excellent pick." —Midwest Book Review
