From the prize-winning author of Seating Arrangements comes the masterful story of a young woman who abandons her dreams to start a new life. Spanning decades, crossing continents, Astonish Me is stunning examination of love and sacrifice. Joan Joyce has left her broken heart and everything she knew in New York City and settled in to a quiet family life in suburban California. But the past is not finished with her yet: before her eyes her son Harry is growing up to be the dancer she could never be. Pulled back into the glamorous, unforgiving world she had left far behind, Joan must confront the decisions she made long ago, and the choices that shaped the lives of those she loves most.
