Washington, DC, 2019: When a stranger contacts Laura Preston claiming to be her brother who disappeared forty years earlier when the family lived in Bangkok, Laura flies to Thailand. But meeting him leads to more questions than answers. Bangkok, 1972: Genevieve and Robert Preston live in a beautiful house raising their three children.

Customer Reviews

“Banks explores aging, memory, and reputation in thoughtful and touching ways. . . . A challenging, risk-taking work marked by a wry and compassionate intelligence.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Atkins delivers an action-forward homage, complete with a cordite-smelling finale (blood-spattered, yes, but cleansing, too).”

— Booklist

“Weir’s clever plot reimagines Anna’s deliciously scandalous maidenhood, sacrifices, and yearning for love. This riveting historical resonates long after the last page is devoured.”
