About

Overview

A New York Times Bestselling Author

After many years in Boston, Lil and Frank have retired to North Carolina. The two of them married young, having bonded over how they both — suddenly, tragically — lost a parent when they were children. Now, Lil has become deter¬mined to leave a history for their own kids. She sifts through letters and notes and diary entries, uncovering old stories — and perhaps revealing more secrets than Frank wants their children to know.

Meanwhile, Frank has become obsessed with the house he lived in as a boy on the outskirts of town, where a young single mother, Shelley, is now raising her son. For Shelley, Frank’s repeated visits begin to trigger memories of her own family, memories that she’d hoped to keep buried. Because, after all, not all parents are ones you wish to remember.
