Life is a challenge for 36 year old Kate Cavanaugh high school guidance counselor to a motley group of at risk students Two years after finding her young husband dead in bed beside her Kate's storybook life has vanished and she and her two childre. I highly highly recommend Mary E Mitchell s new novel Americans in Space The main character mother and high school guidance counselor Kate Cavanaugh is a beautifully rendered Every Woman who feels less like a character on a page and like an old friend to whom you re lending your ear as she uncovers her bruised heart The combination of humor and pathos Kate embodies as she attempts to make sense of her young widowhood has you rooting for her even in moments when her missteps in managing everything from her teenage daughter s behavior to conversation on a dinner date make you cringe and groan At no point does Mitchell opt for the easy answers for this family whose struggle to reconfigure itself around their missing father and husband would be an easy stock tear jerker turned triumph story for a lesser writer Their aches are real but so are their joys and this is what makes the novel such a compelling read You love this family even when it s at its worst because Mitchell gives you convincing glimpses of what it could be at its best She also gives you some of the most thoughtful sentences you ll read in new fiction with language so vivid and straightforward that her characters transcend the page and become people you will positively miss when you turn the last page
