This Was Not the Plan
May 15, 2024  /  338 pages  /  Fiction
When theater director Sylvia Tanisman wins her first Tony award, her husband uses the occasion to announce he’s divorcing her. Sylvia flees the shambles of her marriage by accepting a visiting professorship at Linden, an elite college in Pierre, New York. A few counties north, high school senior Meg Croyden has narrowly survived a self-destructive, rebellious youth and is headed to Linden
on a full scholarship. In the town of Pierre, lifelong resident and devout Catholic Caroline Byrne McClanahan struggles with the secret shame of a family that is falling apart. When circumstances bring the three women—hailing from starkly different worlds—to the local abortion clinic in Pierre, their fates are forever entwined.

This Was Not the Plan tackles one of the most important issues of our time with humor, compassion, and authenticity. The story is by turns funny, dark, and darkly funny. The collision of the lives of Sylvia, Meg, and Caroline reminds us of the dangers of thinking in black and white and the importance and possibility of finding humanity in each other, even where you least expect it.
