This is an auction for GOOD TO A FAULT by Marina Endicott.

"If she'd only driven straight ahead, Clara Purdy wouldn't have been thrown for such a curve. When her car plows into that of the Gage family, father, mother, three children, and cranky grandmother, Clara ends up exchanging more than just routine insurance information. Though no one is seriously injured, Lorraine Gage requires hospitalization, and tests reveal she suffers from an advanced stage of cancer. Homeless and nearly destitute, the remaining Gages are welcomed into guilt-ridden Clara's home. Long divorced, stuck in a lackluster job, Clara and her world could use a little shaking up, but caring for the Gages gives her more than she bargained for. As she grows to love the three kids and tolerate the grandmother (dad flies the coop), Clara begins contemplating the "what if" of Lorraine's uncertain future and finds she welcomes the role of instant motherhood. Probing the moral and emotional minefield of heroic Samaritan acts, Endicott's enchanting and poignant novel of compassion run amok handles provocative issues with a deft and winsome touch."
