Anna Goodrich is a twenty-eight-year-old artist in New York City, out on a Friday night in the city when she gets the call that her uncle has suddenly died. When she returns home to mid-coast Maine for his funeral, she faces all that she left behind when she left seven years earlier.
The pain of her own mother's death, the fractured relationships with her father, and her first love. The life she had built for herself in New York-the art world, her boyfriend, her roommate who is also her best friend-allowed her to forget the grief and hurt she had left behind in Maine. But when her uncle leaves her a surprising inheritance, if forces her to face them, and the parts of her self she's buried.
As she searches for answers about herself, and where she belongs, she discovers how people and places shape us, and how understanding, forgiveness, and grace have the power to transform us and the people we love.
