From the author of The Wishing Tide comes a
stunning new novel about two summers, one journal, and the
secrets that can break and open our hearts....
Pragmatic, independent Lily St. Claire has never been a
beachgoer. But when her late father leaves her a small house
on Hideaway Key—one neither her mother nor she knew he
owned—she’s determined to visit the sleepy spit of land
along Florida’s Gulf Coast. Expecting a quaint cottage, Lily
instead finds a bungalow with peeling shutters and mountains
of memorabilia. She also catches a glimpse of the architect
who lives down the beach….
But it’s the carton of old journals in the front room that
she finds most intriguing. The journals were written by her
mother’s sister, an infamous beauty whose name has long been
banned from the St. Claire home. The journals tell a family
tale Lily has never heard, of her mother and her aunt as
young girls in Tennessee and the secrets that followed them
into adulthood. As she reads, Lily gains a new
understanding: about her family and about herself. And she
begins to open her heart—to this place, these people, and
the man next door. But can she ever truly learn to trust, to
believe that love is not a trap but a harbor? And is it true
that hearts, even broken ones, can be forged anew?
