Reta Winters has many reasons to be happy—her three nearly grown daughters, her twenty-year relationship with her husband, her work translating the larger-than-life French intellectual and feminist Danielle Westerman, and her modest success with a novel of her own and the demand for a sequel. Suddenly, all the quiet satisfactions of her well-lived life disappear in a moment. Her eldest daughter, Norah, suddenly drops out of college, runs from the family and is found on a Toronto street corner, holding a hand-written cardboard sign reading GOODNESS. There she sits daily, pan-handling and refusing to speak, having relinquished her privileged life and her future, seemingly for nothing more than a word. Norah’s defection from a normal life is an inexplicable mystery arising from the totally unlikely context of a loving family: Tom, the doctor father; Reta, the writer, translator, housewife and mother; two younger sisters, Natalie and Christine; a treasured old dog, Pet; and their rambling old home on the outskirts of Orangetown, an hour's drive from Toronto.
