Description
An indie musician reeling from tragedy and a public breakdown reconnects with her father on a weeklong cruise in “a pitch-perfect story about the ways we recover love in the strangest places” (Rebecca Serle, bestselling author of In Five Years)

“The characters are drawn with a generosity that allows them to be wrong but also right, loving but also prone to missteps, and ultimately deserving of a resolution that’s full of hope.”—Linda Holmes, New York Times bestselling author of Evvie Drake Starts Over

ONE OF THE MOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF 2022—BookPage
Right after the sudden death of her mother—her first and most devoted fan—and just before the launch of her high-stakes sophomore album, Greta James falls apart on stage. The footage quickly goes viral and she stops playing, her career suddenly in jeopardy—the kind of jeopardy her father, Conrad, has always predicted; the kind he warned her about when he urged her to make more practical choices with her life. 
 
Months later, Greta—still heartbroken and very much adrift—reluctantly agrees to accompany Conrad on the Alaskan cruise her parents had booked to celebrate their fortieth anniversary. It could be their last chance to heal old wounds in the wake of shared loss. But the trip will also prove to be a voyage of discovery for them both, and for Ben Wilder, a charming historian, onboard to lecture about The Call of the Wild, who is struggling with a major upheaval in his own life. As Greta works to build back her confidence and Ben confronts an uncertain future, they find themselves drawn to and relying on each other.
It’s here in this unlikeliest of places—at sea, far from the packed city venues where she usually plays and surrounded by the stunning scenery of Alaska—Greta will finally confront the choices she’s made, the heartbreak she’s suffered, and the family hurts that run deep. In the end, she’ll have to decide what her path forward might look like—and how to find her voice again.

        Thirtysomething and newly famous, Greta James has everything going for her. Her music career is taking off, and she has a tour on the horizon. That is, until an emotional performance after the death of her mother leaves her questioning her future as a musician. At the insistence of her brother, Greta joins her father on an Alaskan cruise that will set them on the path to healing both fresh and long-festering wounds and will introduce her to Ben, a charming historian. Along the way, Greta will grow as a person, meet some fans, and, ultimately, decide which path she wants to take in life. This new novel from Smith (Field Notes on Love) will speak to those who first read her YA novels (The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight) as teens but have grown up enough to understand more about the complexities of life and love. Award-winning actor and narrator Mae Whitman brings Greta to life, making her sound both strong and vulnerable. VERDICT A must-have for any new adult romance collection. Will appeal to patrons looking for a novel with depth and well-developed characters.--Elyssa Everling
