Lauren Adelman married her high school sweetheart, Rory Kinkaid, a star hockey player. They were very much in love and had a bright future when Rory shocks everyone by enlisting in the U.S. Army.
Tragically Rory dies in combat, and Lauren retreats into herself at her family’s summer home and tries to become anonymous to the media and the public. She takes a job as a waitress and keeps herself busy so she doesn’t have too much time to think.
Then filmmaker Matt Brio comes onto the scene, who is making a documentary about her late husband.
Lauren is upset that her quiet life is about to be upended. Long time tensions with her older sister also come into play.
Her mother and father have problems of their own, and the secrets that have been kept in the dark begin to be revealed one by one.
This was a good women’s fiction read. I’m not much into romances, but this book did not lean too much into that genre.
It was more about family and relationships and the ties that bind.
