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 Keyâ€”one neither her mother nor she knew he
ownedâ€”sheâ€™s determined to visit the sleepy spit of land
along Floridaâ€™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 beachâ€¦.
But itâ€™s the carton of old journals in the front room that
she finds most intriguing. The journals were written by her
motherâ€™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 heartâ€”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?
