Nine months after Catherine Leary's father, a literature professor, passed away, she still has not fulfilled his final wish: that she scatter his ashes in the Seaboro River in South Carolina. The scene of a childhood tragedy that forced her family to move, Seaboro is the last place Catherine wants to see again. But on the evening of her thirtieth birthday, her father's young colleague - whom she once dated - pays a visit. Forrest Anderson offers a challenge from Catherine's father: three probing questions that he had planned to put inside a birthday letter to his daughter. But it's the news that Forrest plans to memorialize her father in an article that includes the family's time in Seaboro - and the surprising revelation that her father visited there in recent years - that sends Catherine reeling. Hoping to stop Forrest from exposing her family's secrets, she agrees to accompany him to her once - beloved Lowcountry town - and embarks on a poignant trip into the past . . . a journey that might lead her into a new life of love, forgiveness, and self-discovery.

    " This was a quick read. Sad story about the loss of a child and overcoming your past. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Perrin | 2/17/2014

    " So I really loved this book. The main character goes through a very interesting transformation. I am a sucker for books set in the Carolinas. There are beautiful quotes at the beginning of each chapter. Amy K.....I think you would like this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sullibzin | 2/17/2014

    " I loved it. I cried almost every day while I was reading. Ms. Henry knows how to write emotions. My heart was aching for Cappy on her journey of discovery and cheering for her as she started to take chances again. Well done! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 2/11/2014

    " I loved this book. The book stayed with me for a while, whether becuase of the beautiful writing or the good storyline, I recommend it. An unexpected favorite of mine "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 2/3/2014

    " I liked this book..wouldn't rave about it...beach read for sure. Not the page turner I thought it would be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 1/29/2014

    " After reading this book for the first time, I shelved it back with the rest of my books and forgot about it for a while. It was good, yes, but forgetful. Well, maybe not too forgetful, because about a year later I started craving it for no apparent reason. It is obvious that Patti Callahan Henry has a way with words. Her quotes are profound and trill with honesty. I don't know what it was that called me back to this book; probably God, but the second helping was much more gratifying. So much so, that it earned a spot on my favorites list. If you're looking for truth and a resonant theme, you're looking for this book. It's the answers to all of your questions about family, love, and life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Atty | 1/28/2014

    " A lite love story, predictable, fine for the beach. The most interesting character was her deceased father, and he was(sadly) not developed very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa Edwards | 1/10/2014

    " A wonderful read, highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 1/9/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book and the way in which the various characters are revealed - to the reader, to one another, and even to themselves. A really good book with perhaps just a little bit too much description at times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 1/1/2014

    " Patti Callahan Henry is an amazing author. Be ready to sit down for at least 6 hours to get this book read. It's addicting! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy T | 12/27/2013

    " Interlibrary loan for this book. I found this book to really crab me from the start and keep me reading. It is a story of family, Friends, find loving and losing love and secrets. I loved this book and even had a good cry while reading this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 12/14/2013

    " Great book! It is a great story about going back to deal with issues from your past. There was more to just a tragedy and a family moving away from it all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 12/14/2013

    " chick lit lifetime movie of the week book - but good "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 12/7/2013

    " I have read several books by this author and they have all been good reads. I enjoy "Southern' stories and characters. While I liked some of her other books a little beter, I would still recommend this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 12/6/2013

    " This was a great story. It was well written. The characters were very easy to relate to, it's a story about a woman who has to re-visit her past to be able to move on with her future. Nice easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 8/15/2013

    " This book was a great chick flick book. It kept me interested, but it was a little cheesy. It was also very predictable, and I guessed the ending by the first half of the book. But if you are looking for a quick, easy, and romantic read then you would probably enjoy the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Misty | 8/11/2013

    " This one started off a bit slow but boy did it pick up steam. It was a story full of tragedy, grief, buried secrets and redemption. Definitely worth reading again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tayla | 6/27/2013

    " A lovely book, one that really transports you to the setting through the rich descriptions provided by the author. It also provides insight into familial relationships and the burden of unresolved guilt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 3/13/2013

    " This book was so engrossing it kept me home, on the last Friday night of my vacation, instead of going to a birthday party at Doug Fir... one of my favorite watering holes, SE Portland style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Gurganus | 2/11/2013

    " A book set in the lowcountry of South Carolina. Kindof reminds me of some of Nicholas Sparks books. It's about a childhood changed by a tragedy and then working through all it when an adult. Love, forgiveness, discovery of one's self... it's thread throughout the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Leigh | 2/8/2013

    " A beautiful story with poignant prose. Combines southern culture with literature and a search for truth. Just beautiful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janeen | 11/6/2012

    " This was a great book and it did surprise me. I had to keep reading to the last page to actually see what would happen to the characters. The author really keeps you hanging! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 8/31/2012

    " I have to say that at first I thought this was a story about a woman with one leg. Really. Somebody messed up with the cover photo! Anyway, this was a quick read and a great story - perfect for a train or plane ride or the beach. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vivian | 8/31/2012
