Okay, get a box of Kleenex and be prepared to have your heart wrung every which way. Not everyone loves a dramatic story, but this one has a satisfying ending, despite the tone of the book. I hate giving anything away in a story, so I won't mention anything more, other than to say that Gina's story has a life of it's own. Her characters have life and you can't help but fall into the story with them.


Jenny Lucas swore she’d never go home again. But being told you’re dying has a way of changing things. Years after she left, she and her five-year-old daughter, Isabella, must return to her sleepy North Carolina town to face the ghosts she left behind. They welcome her in the form of her oxygen tank–toting grandmother, her stoic and distant father, and David, Isabella’s dad . . . who doesn’t yet know he has a daughter. As Jenny navigates the rough and unknown waters of her new reality, the unforgettable story that unfolds is a testament to the power of love and its ability to change everything—to heal old hurts, bring new beginnings . . . even overcome the impossible. A stunning debut about love and loss from a talented new voice.
