Hannah Williams couldn’t get out of her small hometown fast enough, preferring the faster pace, trendy lifestyle, and beauty of California’s Pacific Ocean coast. Only when her younger sister, Dilly, makes a desperate choice and commits an unthinkable act does Hannah realize she never should have left her behind in rural Illinois. Hannah returns home to make up for letting Dilly down, leaving the one man she’s ever loved in California. But Dilly is a changed woman, and when Hannah’s plans don’t go as expected, the bonds of sisterhood are tested like never before.
