Description

New from the author of Beach Plum Island... A natural-born storyteller presents a gripping story about grief, anger, and the healing power of love.
Sydney Bishop hasn't returned to Haven Lake, her idyllic childhood home, since a pair of shocking, tragic deaths shattered her family when she was only sixteen. Now a child psychologist engaged to marry a successful surgeon, Sydney has worked hard to build a relationship with Dylan, her fiance's teenage son, so she feels nothing but empathy when he runs away--until she discovers that his hitchhiking journey has led him to Haven Lake and her mother Hannah's sheep farm.
Sydney returns to Haven Lake for the first time in twenty years to coax the boy home. Against her daughter's wishes, Hannah offers to take Dylan in until he's ready to reveal his own troubling secrets. Now, for Dylan's sake as well as their own, Sydney and Hannah must confront the devastating events that tore them apart and answer the questions that still haunt their family--and the suspicious surrounding community--about what really caused two people to die on their farm those many years ago.

Review quote

Praise for Holly Robinson's Novels

"Who and what make us who we really are? In Robinson's luminous novel of buried secrets, she explores how the past can jump-start the future, how motherhood can be more than genetics, and why finding yourself sometimes depends on discovering the truth in others."--Caroline Leavitt, "New York"" Times" bestselling author of "Is This Tomorrow"

"A story about love, loss, secrets, and finding out where we're really supposed to be in our lives."--Maddie Dawson, Author of "The Stuff That Never Happened"

"[An] absorbing, big-hearted novel."--Elizabeth Graver, author of "The End of the Point"

"Robinson masterfully paints the portrait of a damaged family in the quake of a tragedy...This novel is a thoughtful exploration of the fragility, and the tenacity, of the ties that bind."--T. Greenwood, author of "Bodies of Water"
