Description - Newfangled by Debra Monroe
Maddie, a refugee from two marriages, wanders from place to place seeking new options and new connections. She eventually settles in a cozy old neighbourhood in Tucson, gets a job, and contemplates her life so far: she has a mother who's been missing for two decades, a father she rarely sees, two sisters married to the same men for fifteen years, and a circle of quirky, spiteful, and loyal friends. Just as she's trying to decide whether she's actually 'at home' in Tucson, she receives a phone call that sends her on another journey, one that takes her both physically and emotionally into the past and affords her a glimpse of a newfangled future.
