Lucy Tuttle is a workaholic financial planner whose biggest worry is how to line up the sticky notes on her desk just so
, but when her free-spirited, vivacious aunt dies in a car accident halfway across the world, Lucy's carefully ordered world spins out of control.
With her last remaining family member gone, the big 3-0 approaching, domestication closing in, and her faltering biological clock a never-ending reminder of the time she isn't spending building a family, Lucy tries to make a home for herself and her eco-activist boyfriend in the fixer-upper she's inherited from her aunt. But as she struggles to settle into a life of renovation, cohabitation, organic lentils, and sock thievery, she starts to wonder how she ended up there--and when she'll feel alive again.
As she works through her grief and tries to find somewhere to belong, Lucy begins to understand that sometimes, realizing one dream means giving up another. Can a person who spends her time fixing other people's lives learn to live her own?
Poignant, quirky, and humorous, The Sock Wars is a contemporary women's fiction story from author Maia Sepp that reminds us that there's only one thing harder than living up to other people's expectations: facing your own.
