Every family has its secrets--and its surprises...
On Sale: October 1, 2009
Add to Wish List
The Rowans' rambling Maine farmhouse is just big enough to
contain the family members gathered there in the week before
Christmas. Becca Rowan has driven north from Boston with one
thought in mind - reclaiming the daughter she gave up when
she was a frightened teenager. Raised by Becca's older
brother and his wife, Rain Rowan, now sixteen, has no idea
she was adopted. And though Becca agreed not to reveal the
truth until Rain turned twenty-one, lately that promise,
along with all her career success, counts for little in the
face of her loneliness and longing. But while Becca
anticipates shock at her announcement, she's unprepared for
the depth of her family's reactions. Her brother is angry
and fearful of losing the daughter he adores; her sister
Olivia, oblivious to her crumbling marriage, reveals
long-buried resentments, while Becca's parents are torn
between concern and guilt. And as the Rowans' neighbour,
Alex, draws her deeper into an unexpected friendship, Becca
begins to challenge her own preconceptions about family,
about love, and about the courage needed to live with - and
sometimes change - the decisions we make.
