The Map of True Places by Brunonia Barry

Zee Finch, a respected psychotherapist, has a patient commit suicide.  She feels responsible and the death brings back memories of her own mother’s suicide.  Her engagement is also falling apart and her dad has late stage Parkinson’s.  As she tries to make sense of her life, she realizes she doesn’t know what she wants to do with her furture.  Zee is easy to relate to and her journey is compelling. Check out The Lace Reader as well, which features some of the same characters as The Map of True Places.
