A momentous new novel set in Maine and filled with surprises, wit, and warmth from the New York Times bestselling author.
Callie Perry is a successful family photographer living in Upstate New
York. She adores her two daughters, has great friends, and actually
doesn't mind that her workaholic husband gets home at 9 p.m. every
night—that is, when he's not traveling six months out of the year.
Callie's younger sister, Steff, on the other hand, has never grown up.
She's a free spirit, living in downtown Manhattan and bouncing between
jobs and boyfriends. Lately, she's been working as a vegan chef, even
though she can't cook.
Lila Grossman is Callie’s best friend and
has finally met the man of her dreams. Eddie has two wonderful
children, but also a drama queen ex-wife who hates Lila. And then there
are Callie and Steff’s parents, Walter Cutler and Honor Pitman. Divorced
for thirty years, they rarely speak to each other.
of these colorful characters intersect when they each receive a shocking
note that summons them together for one extraordinary summer in Maine
and changes their lives forever. This novel is about the hard choices we
have to face, about having to be your parents’ child long after you've
grown up, and about the enduring nature of love.
