Description
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Bookshop at Water's End, here is a lush, heart-wrenching novel about the power of memory, the meaning of family, and learning to forgive.Ten years ago, Lena Donohue experienced a wedding-day betrayal so painful that she fled the small town of Watersend, South Carolina, and reinvented herself in New York City. Though now a freelance travel writer, the one place she rarely goes is home—until she learns of her dad's failing health.Returning to Watersend means seeing the sister she has avoided for a decade and the brother who runs the family's Irish pub and has borne the burden of his sisters' rift. While Alzheimer's slowly steals their father's memories, the siblings rush to preserve his life in stories and in photographs. As his secret past brings Lena's own childhood into focus, it sends her on a journey to discover the true meaning of home.

        March 4, 2019
        In Henry’s satisfying latest novel set in Watersend, S.C. (after The Bookshop at Water’s End), a woman returns to the town she fled from and is forced to relive her own recollections while trying to record her father’s. Minutes away from marrying who she thought was the perfect man, Colleen instead caught him kissing her sister, Hallie. Grabbing the suitcase packed for her honeymoon, she ran, creating a new life in New York and limiting contact with her family; her ex eventually married Hallie. Ten years later, when her brother, Shane, tells her their father is losing ground to dementia, she reluctantly goes home. Hallie is angry that Colleen abandoned their family, never letting Hallie tell her side. While creating a memory book to help her dad battle his Alzheimer’s, Colleen learns that memories and history are often impossible to run from or bury. Readers will be immersed in this moving tale, hungry to learn whether love and family will overcome betrayal, secrets, and heartache. Agent: Marly Rusoff, Marly Rusoff Literary.
