In the spring of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell
deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the
tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the
small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year
came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting
them on radically divergent paths.
Now, twenty-five years later, Amanda and Dawson are summoned back to Oriental
for the funeral of Tuck Hostetler, the mentor who once gave shelter to their
high school romance. Neither has lived the life they imagined—and neither can
forget the passionate first love that forever changed their lives. As Amanda
and Dawson carry out the instructions Tuck left behind for them, they realize
that everything they thought they knew—about Tuck, about themselves, and about
the dreams they held dear—was not as it seemed. Forced to confront painful
memories, the two former lovers will discover undeniable truths about the
choices they have made. And in the course of a single, searing weekend, they
will ask of the living, and the dead: Can love truly rewrite the past?
