Three women. Two families torn apart by secrets.
Crushed by guilt over the car accident that killed her father and sister, and torn apart by her mother’s resentment, Darcy Goodridge fled her family estate eight years ago and hasn’t looked back. Now an unexpected phone call threatens to upend what little serenity she’s found.
Her nephew, Emerson, who was just a baby when his mother died, has gone missing. Darcy must return home and face her past in order to save him.
Once back in Ohio, Darcy realizes there’s more to Emerson’s disappearance—and to the sudden retirement of her mother, Rosalind—than meets the eye. As she works to make inroads with Rosalind, Darcy begins to unravel a decades-old secret that devastated her family and forced a wedge between her and Michael Varano, the man she left heartbroken when she vanished after the funeral.
After carrying the scars of that fateful night for almost a decade, Darcy is determined to find closure, healing, and maybe even love where she lost them all in the first place—right back home where she belongs.
This book is about family and forgiveness. Sometimes when there’s a family emergency, members of the clan will manage to put their bad feelings aside in order to see it through. And that’s exactly what happens here.
Mother and daughter put aside their anger and resentment in order to put the past behind them and move forward as a family.
This is a good women’s fiction book, with a little romance thrown in, to read while rocking on your porch or before sleep. It would also be a good beach read.
