High-powered Manhattan attorney, Ellen Branford, is going to fulfill her grandmother’s dying wish to find the hometown boy she once loved and give him her last letter. When Ellen leaves her Kennedy-esque fiancé, Hayden Croft, to go to Beacon, Maine, she expects to have a quick twenty-four-hour stay. But a near-drowning experience leads her to become a local celebrity and introduces her to a man named Roy, a carpenter who saves her life.

As Ellen learns more about the past her grandmother has kept hidden and works to bring closure to her quest, she may find that a twenty-four-hour visit to Beacon will never be enough.

About the Author

Mary Simses grew up in Connecticut and spent much of her life in the Northeast, where she attended college and law school. As a child she loved to write stories, design covers for them, and staple them into books. Later, careers in journalism and law took priority and creative writing slipped away, until she enrolled in an evening fiction writing class at a local university and was hooked again. Her short stories have appeared in a number of literary journals and she lives in South Florida with her husband/law partner and their daughter.
