One phone call is all it takes to lure real estate photographer Mallory Aldiss back to her family Rhode Island beach home. It’s been twenty years since she’s been gone—running from the scandal that destroyed her parents’ marriage, drove her and her two sisters apart, and crushed her relationship with her first love. But going home is fraught with emotional baggage—memories, mysteries and secrets abound. Mal’s thirteen-year-old daughter, Joy, has never been to the place where Mal’s life was shaped and is
desperate to go. Fatherless, she craves family and especially wants to spend time with the grandfather she barely knows. In just seven watershed days on the Rhode Island coast three women will test the bonds of sisterhood, friendship and family, and discover the role that love and memory plays in defining their lives.

**The publisher sent me an ARC to review. All opinions are my own!**
Ohhh this book was good. It had me on my toes throughout the entire book. The characters were well written. Just the right amount of dialogue and text. I felt like I was right there in the middle of it all. Which is exactly how I like to be when I’m reading. For sure pick this one up! So good!
