A poignant breakout novel, for fans
of J. Courtney
Sullivan and Elin Hilderbrand, about a single mother who
inherits a beautiful beach house with a caveatâ€”she must take
care of the ornery elderly woman who lives in it.
For years, Maggie Sheets has been an invisible hand in the
glittering homes of wealthy New York City clients,
scrubbing, dusting, mopping, and doing all she can to keep
her head above water as a single mother. Everything changes
when a former employer dies leaving Maggie a staggering
inheritance. A house in Sag Harbor. The catch? It comes with
an inhabitant: The deceasedâ€™s eighty-two-year old mother Edith.
Edith has Alzheimerâ€™sâ€”or so the doctors tell herâ€”but she
remembers exactly how her daughter Liza could light up a
room, or bring dark clouds in her wake. And now Lizaâ€™s gone,
by her own hand, and Edith has been leftâ€”like a chaise or
strand of pearlsâ€”to a poorly dressed young woman with a
toddler in tow.
Maggie and Edith are both certain this arrangement will be
an utter disaster. But as summer days wane, a tenuous bond
forms, and Edith, who feels the urgency of her diagnosis,
shares a secret that sheâ€™s held close for five decades,
launching Maggie on a mission that might just lead them each
to what they are looking for.
