Good to a Fault by Marina Endicott (#7)
Clara Purdy is a single woman in her forties who is involved in a car accident at the very beginning of the book, spinning her life out of control and in a totally new direction. Who is at fault in the accident is questionable but Clara takes it upon herself to take full care of the family in the car she hit. The mother of the family is very I'll, not from the accident but from previously undisguised cancer. The father of the family is angry and irresponsible and quickly runs away. Clara finds herself in a new life of caring for three small children, sacrificing her job and her quiet life for all these new people. Life in her community in a Canadian town and all it's characters become part of the story. I loved it!
