by George Weinstein
A WORLD-CLASS BALLERINA loses her left leg in a horrifying accident, and with it, she loses her entire identity. After striving her entire life to establish a place in the grueling world of professional ballet, Sarah Gordon must reinvent herself. But as Sarah attempts to forge her new life, her husband’s guilt turns him into an overbearing and meticulous caretaker. The couple must navigate their new roles and find the perfect balance of love and independence, or risk losing their marriage completely.
George Weinstein’s masterful contemporary fiction offers a provocative collision of trauma, tragedy, and hope. The Caretaker is a graceful romantic novel that bewitches readers with irresistible imagery and characters to fall in love with.
Sarah’s story belongs to anyone who has ever gone through pain and loss to come out stronger and better. Don’t miss this one!
