The Keep—that beautiful, ancient family home where the Chadwick family has lived for generations—is still a haven from the heartbreaks and storms of life. Jolyon Chadwick, a famous television presenter, takes his new girlfriend, Henrietta, home to meet his extended family—and also to meet Marie, the mother who deserted him and his father many years ago, and who has now reappeared and seems to want forgiveness.

Jolyon, however, is not in the mood for forgiveness—although his father, Hal, now married to his cousin and childhood sweetheart, feels a lingering guilt about Marie and wants them all to be friends. And Henrietta, still vulnerable from the breakup of her own parents’ marriage, is not sure whether she can move on.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[A] gentle, charming novel of indiscretion, grudges, love, and mortality…The plot clicks along with pleasant, cathartic rhythms and an intriguing mystery subplot.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The institutions of marriage and family come under particularly keen scrutiny in Willett’s reliably tender hands.”

    " A good addition to the Chadwick family saga. I really miss sagas, it seems everyone's writing shorter books these days. "

    " I wanted to like this book...I really did. But it was SO slow. I kept reading, hoping the pace would pick up but it never really did. I will give it to the author though...she managed to tidy up everything at the end and top it with a perfectly tied ribbon! "

    " I didn't realize this was part of a series until adding to my bookshelf. I usually love her books, but this one seemed to drone on. Perhaps I will start at the beginning of the series and it will be better. I'm skeptical though. "
