Laguna Beach Books Presents Signs of Life Local Author Randy Kraft Wednesday June 1 2016.
Laguna Beach Books Meet The Author is a Free Event that begins at 5:00pm.
Nell’s husband and son died in a freak accident only weeks before 9/11 hit NYC, where she resides, and the one-two punch rendered her a recluse.
Ten years later, Anna, her last friend and confidante, is also the victim of an accident, and Nell ventures out from the city to join family and friends awaiting Anna’s recovery.
What no one knows is Nell promised Anna to protect her right to die, a role she never wanted, which is further complicated when she discovers secrets that call their friendship into question.
Confronting Anna’s defiant sister and husband, bolstering her adolescent children, and encountering unexpected allies, Nell is forced to examine the narratives we create about ourselves and the people we love, and ultimately defend her place in Anna’s destiny, as well as the unusual choices she has made to deal with tragedy.
An intimate story of an unusual bond between a pragmatist and Buddhist, potter and photographer, and a woman who documents memories versus one mired in memory.
Who will show signs of life?
