From the author of If Wishes Were Horses comes a novel of long-buried secrets and self-discovery, showing us that sometimes what goes unsaid is more powerful than words…

Chelsea Enright never expected to inherit her grandmother’s lakeside cottage deep in the Adirondacks—a serene getaway that had been mysteriously closed up decades ago. This is no simple bequest, however, because when Chelsea finds her grandmother’s WWII diaries, she's stunned to discover that they hold secrets she never suspected… and they have the power to turn her own life upside down.

Even more surprising is the compelling presence of local doctor Brandon Yale, and Chelsea soon finds her “short stay” has stretched into the entire summer. She cannot put this cottage and her family's past behind her easily—and the more she learns about the woman her grandmother truly was, the more Chelsea’s own life begins to change…and nothing will ever be the same again.

    " I really enjoyed Brooke's journal. I kind of wish it was more about her story, it was very interesting. Perhaps it was the time era she was living through. Overall I really liked the book and I'm glad it included Brooke's World War II recipes. "

    " I was looking forward to reading a book set in the Adirondacks. However this was horrible. A good editor would have cut the duplication & overdrawn characters by half. "
