In an emotionally rich and captivating new novel,
New York Times bestselling author Marie Bostwick
reunites three sisters whose deep bond is rooted in an
Every child prodigy grows up eventually. For the Promise
sisters, escaping their mother’s narcissism and the
notoriety that came with her bestselling book hasn’t been
easy. Minerva Promise claimed that her three “test tube”
daughters—gifted pianist Joanie, artistic Meg, and
storyteller Avery—were engineered and molded to be geniuses.
In adulthood, their modest lives fall far short of her grand
ambitions. But now, twenty years after the book’s release,
she hopes to redeem herself by taking part in a new documentary.
Meg, who hasn’t picked up a paintbrush in years, adamantly
refuses to participate, until a car accident leaves her with
crushing medical bills. While she recuperates in Seattle,
the three sisters reluctantly meet with filmmaker Hal
Seeger, another former prodigy. Like them, he’s familiar
with the weight of failed potential. But as he digs deeper,
he uncovers secrets they’ve hidden from each other—and a
revelation that will challenge their beliefs, even as it
spurs them to forge their own extraordinary lives at last.
