A Shot at Us by Cameron Lowe
Inspired by It's a Wonderful Life, A Shot at Us is a contemporary love story for the ages. Spanning a decade and a half, readers will fall for a colorful cast of lovable characters in a fictional city in eastern Montana. All her adult life, Gwen Caplan has been falling - falling out of love with her terrific boyfriend, falling for her future husband Malcolm, falling in health and in wealth, and falling away from her beloved family. Beset over the years by health problems, she feels like she's become the reason her husband and three children can't get a foothold in life. When she winds up in the hospital again with a bad case of pneumonia just two days before Christmas, Gwen sees a way out, not for herself, but her family. Venturing out into a freezing Montana night, Gwen is unsure if she's making the right decision or not by ending things, but she knows she loves her family and would do anything for them. Anything. As she tries to decide her fate that night, Malcolm receives word from the hospital that his wife has gone missing. Slowly he figures out the truth of what she's doing, but she's disappeared. As the many years of their life together are examined, Malcolm too ventures out into the cold, hoping he can find the woman he loves most in this world and talk her into staying, because he knows the truth. Her life is precious, no matter the cost of her every breath. A story about pain, light, and love, A Shot at Us takes a long, sometimes hard look at the true cost of a modern life spent scrabbling for every inch, and how the kindness we share along the way can lift us up to something greater.
