From the bestselling author of Songs in Ordinary Time, Mary McGarry Morris’s fourth novel is a gripping, passionate story of one woman’s battle with the secrets surrounding her family. A novel about the need for truth and a search for understanding.
Feisty, gorgeous Fiona Range is, at thirty, beginning to worry that her chaotic life is a stage she should have grown out of by now. Responsibility has never lain easily with Fiona, a small-town good-time girl used to being the odd one out. With her mother missing, she was raised by the respectable family of her uncle Judge Hollis, a man whom Fiona, with her wild ways, can’t help but disappoint. The return home of Fiona’s gentle cousin Elizabeth – with fiancé in tow – brings first loves, past mistakes and current passions to the fore. In a gripping finale, Fiona finds she is not the only one with terrible secrets.
