Elderly Margaret Hughes is living alone in a mansion in Seattle, with only a massive collection of antiques for company, when she meets Wanda Schultz, a young woman with a broken heart who has come to Seattle to search for her wayward boyfriend. Both women are guarding dark secrets and have spent years building up protective armor against the outside world. But as the two begin their tentative dance of friendship, the armor begins to fall away. When Margaret opens her house to the younger woman, she discovers a way to redeem her cursed past, and Wanda learns the true purpose of her cross-country journey. This exuberant novel is a testament to the saving graces of surrogate families and shows how far the tiniest repair jobs can go in righting the world's wrongs.

Professional reviews

"Fate, redemption, and hope are the forces at work in BROKEN FOR YOU. A lonely, elderly Seattle woman living in her stately, old mansion with only ghosts and antiques for company initiates a complicated chain of events when she decides to take in a boarder. This is just the beginning of what grows to be an ad hoc family. The expanding collection of characters offers Anna Fields fertile ground for narrating this offbeat but engaging story. She gives a nuanced reading (and some singing, too) that showcases her versatility with accents and complex characterizations. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
