Description

When Hannah Legare was eleven, her adored father, Buzz - notoriously charming doctor and family man - went fishing in the mouth of the Charleston harbour. Two days later, his boat was found drifting, holding nothing but his fishing rod and his waiting Labrador retriever. Twenty years later Hannah's new life in San Francisco is unravelling. Her marriage is on the rocks, her business is bankrupt, and she still can't shake her conviction that Buzz must be alive. After a disastrous - not to mention near-fatal - attempt to win her husband back, Hannah returns to her mother's Charleston home to reluctantly 'rest up', and she finds herself once again tugging at the loose threads of her father's disappearance. As Hannah attempts to understand the mysteries of the father she has lost and the husband she may be losing, she sets out on a uproarious, often misguided and sometimes downright dangerous quest and stirs up a hornet's nest of Charleston's secrets.

Review quote

'Katie Crouch's great gifts - a wry, unflinching intelligence and the ability to create flawed, complicated characters - drive this story of a woman who must reckon with her past in order to move into her future. Hannah is exasperating, magnetic, and breathtakingly real' Marisa de los Santos 'An opus of the struggle between a daughter and her father and the wounds and jubilation carried from that relationship into marriage and adulthood. It is, in turns, poignant, revealing, hilarious and sad ... Katie Crouch is an American original' Adriana Trigiani 'I couldn't put the book down ... Witty, sharp and warm all at the same time, with exactly the kind of flawed but fascinating characters I love to read about. I thought it was intelligent yet commercial, with lots of dark humour and real poignancy' Kate Harrison 'Both funny and touching. Crouch's storytelling skill will leave you wanting more' Image
