"A simple but intensely moving story about the redemptive power of love…. [Elizabeth Berg is] a writer whose luminous prose is likely to stay with you a long, long time."
—Chicago Tribune
In this exquisite, emotionally rich novel, New York Times best-selling author Elizabeth Berg offers a deeply satisfying story about the bonds of love and the balm of friendship. A young man named Jay lies in a coma after suffering a freak accident, and his wife, Lainey, is the only one who believes he will recover. She sits at his bedside, bringing him reminders of the ordinary life they shared: fragrant flowers, his children's drawings, his own softly textured shirt. When Lainey's faith in his recovery falters, she is sustained by two women, Alice and Evie, who teach her about the endurance of friendship - and the genuine power of hope. Filled with beautiful writing and truths about life, Range of Motion is compelling and impossible to forget.

Uplifting and Hopeful

A lovely, uplifting story of handing a tragic event with grace and hope. The story has wonderful, sympathetic characters, and makes quiet observations about so many things that are ordinarily taken for granted. There is not a lot of "plot", but I was pulled into this small, simple story. Very life-affirming
