"This debut work for the Orleans resident is a novel about siblings dealing with the impending death of their mother. After getting a call about her mother’s illness while traveling for work, character Sara Austin leads the reader with sarcasm, humor and a sharing of her insecurities through a life event that Lannon notes “we will all face at some point in our life.” Lannon says she has brought her deep connection to the ocean into the theme of the novel." - Kathi Scrizzi Driscoll, Cape Cod Times
ABOUT THE BOOK
One phone call upends Sara Austin's world. Out of town for a company conference, Sara gets a call that her mother is in the hospital. As her reluctant Health Care Proxy, Sara relates, with humor and alcohol, how she and her siblings, each with plenty of baggage, maneuver the murky waters of dealing with an aging parent.
In Nine Days, we learn to love and relate to Sara, a product of divorce, narcissism and alcoholism, as she works through a lifetime of self-doubt and unworthiness to emerge as a stronger, integrated woman.
This book cannot be returned due to publisher restrictions.
