A woman's car is hit broadside. When she awakens from a three-week coma, Danielle McAllister slowly realizes that she has new awareness--the disturbing ability to read the emotions and motives of others with perfect clarity. But this strange gift has a price. Danielle's husband, James, feels shame as he discovers her ability to know his intentions. The marriage goes through a series of jolting revelations while James copes with his transparency. As things fall apart, Danielle forms a relationship of great delicacy and caution with a young man named Harper. Part protectiveness and part suppressed desire, the connection between them deepens while Harper is exhilarated by the same transparency that James finds so shameful. With a touch of Magical Realism, this love story powers a profound and disturbing mystery--what happens inside a person who is completely seen and known, yet not accepted? Wawona Hotel is a searing look at that question, a book both lyrical and wise, that pushes to the core of the human need to be loved.
