An Instant New York Times Bestseller
It's been twenty years since real estate photographer Mallory Aldiss visited her family's Rhode Island beach home. Back then she ran from the scandal that destroyed her parents' marriage, drove her and her two sisters apart, and crushed her relationship with her first love. But going home is fraught with emotional baggage - memories and secrets abound. Mal's teenage daughter, Joy, is desperate to go. Fatherless, Joy craves family and longs to spend time with the grandfather she barely knows. In seven watershed days, three women will test the bonds of sisterhood, friendship, and family, while discovering the role that love and memory plays in defining their lives.
