A brilliant novel about friendships forged in childhood and ruptured by the high price of secrets that leave you forever changed.
Cadie Kessler has spent decades trying to cover up one truth. An urgent message from her long-estranged best friend Daniela Garcia brings Cadie back to her childhood home. There, Cadie and Daniela are forced to face a dark secret that ended both their idyllic childhood bond and the magical summer that takes up so much space in Cadie's memory. Now, bound by long-held oaths, Cadie must decide what she is willing to sacrifice to protect the people she loves, as drought, foreclosures, and wildfire spark tensions between migrant farm workers and locals.
