From New York Times bestselling author
Marie Bostwick comes an emotionally rich, inspiring new
novel about family, second chances--and the connections that
bring women together in hope and healing. . .
Years of long workdays and little sleep as a political
campaigner are about to pay off now that Lucy Toomey's boss
is entering the White House. But when her estranged older
sister, Alice, unexpectedly dies, Lucy is drawn back to
Nilson's Bay, her small, close-knit, Wisconsin hometown.
An accident in her teens left Alice mentally impaired, and
she was content to stay in Nilson's Bay. Lucy, meanwhile,
got out and never looked back. But now, to meet the terms of
Alice's eccentric will, Lucy has taken up temporary
residence in her sister's cottage--and begins to see the
town, and Alice's life, anew. Alice's diverse group of
friends appears to have little in common besides an interest
in quilting. Yet deep affection for Alice united them and
soon Lucy, too, is brought into the fold as they share
problems and stories. And as she finds warmth and support in
this new circle, Lucy begins to understand this will be her
sister's enduring gift--a chance to move beyond her
difficult past, and find what she has long been missing. .
