Author: Jillian Medoff
Release Date: May 15, 2012
It's not the agonizing choices that cause our undoing-it's the choices we never see coming.
Eliot Gordon is a 38-year-old working mom living an ordinary but fulfilling life in suburban Atlanta with her partner, Grant Delaney, and their three daughters. The two older girls are actually Eliot's stepdaughters, a distinction she is reluctant to make as she valiantly attempts to maintain a safe, loving household. Despite constant drama from her idiosyncratic mother and sisters and Grant's irresponsible ex-wife, Eliot finds life gratifying, if not perfect...
Then Finn Montgomery, Eliot's long-lost first love, shows up, triggering a shocking chain of events that threatens to unravel everything she's worked for. How Eliot survives-and what she loses in the process-is a story anyone who has ever loved a child will recognize.
With hilarious honesty, wrenching depth, and a knockout twist, I Couldn't Love You More illuminates the unbreakable bonds of family and reveals the lengths we'll go to save each other, even as we can't save ourselves.
