Laura Bear’s Where the Heart Lands takes the reader on the journey of reinvention with Lucy Litchfield, an average stay-at-home mother whose life falls apart around her when she learns of her husband’s affair with another woman…and the child it resulted in. We see her sink to the low of attempted suicide only to watch her rise up again as she inherits her great aunt’s remote farmhouse. With a space of her own and a clean slate, Lucy is finally granted the opportunity to pick up the pieces and leave the past behind, all while she enjoys the quaint pleasures of pastoral life Minnesota has to offer. Alone and fragile from the still tender wounds left by her old life, Lucy is rejuvenated by a new friendship with her neighbor, Addie. Addie who was a childhood victim of sexual abuse at the hands of her perverted uncle, ran away to find a new family and became a radiant Mennonite of the most charming disposition. Rooted by love for her husband, Carl, and their children, she’s exactly the pair of open arms Lucy needed to make her feel at home in a new place. Together, these two women forge a friendship and embark on a journey of self-discovery. But, just when Lucy begins to settle into her new life, she’s met with adversity on multiple fronts. Her husband of 25 years threatens to claim and sell her new home, the work of restoring the house proves to be more difficult than expected, and the relationship Lucy shares with Addie intensifies and becomes complicated—even forbidden.
