New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice explores the complex emotional equations of love and loyalty that hold together three pairs of remarkable sisters, in an unforgettable story of loss, redemption, and forgiveness.

The storm off Mackinac Island that engulfed Maura Shaw’s husband and elder daughter,Carrie, also swept away the illusion of her life as the perfect midwestern wife and mother. Now, after years away, Maura has returned to Rhode Island to teach English at the fabled Newport Academy and to seek a new beginning. Newport has never failed to infuse Maura with a sense of mystery and hope, but ever since the accident, her younger daughter, fourteen-year-old Beck, has retreated into the safe, predictable world of mathematics. Without Carrie, Beck has lost half of herself—the half that would have fit into the elite private school she and her brother, Travis, will attend. The half that made things right. Sixteen-year-old Travis is also struggling to adjust—juggling a long-distance first love and an attraction to a girl with a wicked sparkle in her eye. And for Maura, ghosts linger here—an unresolved breach with her own beloved sister and a long-ago secret that may now have the power to set her free…

    " I was unabashedly crying at the end of this book - it is very emotional but satisfying. Maura Shaw moved her family (son Travis and daughter Beck) to Newport Academy in Newport, Rhode Island to teach English a year after her husband dies in a tragic accident and her daughter, Carrie, runs away on the day of his death. The story is about a lost love, strong connections between sisters, and how secrets can tear a seemingly happy family apart. It is written from several points of view. The title comes from the character Beck who has retreated into the world of mathematics as a means of seeing her father again. I thoroughly enjoyed it as I have all Luanne Rice books. "

    " I thought this was an enjoyable, heartfelt book. I liked that the author switched character perspectives, though at first it was a tad confusing. If you can handle some sentimentality, this is worth a read. "
