Thirty-five years later, with children of her own,Melissa finds herself in Olympia, Washington, as her mother is dying. Afterdecades of hiding her painful memories, she has just days to find out whathappened that summer and confront the fear she could do the same to her kids.But Melissa never expects to stumble across a cache of letters her mother wroteto her but never sent-letters that could hold the answers she seeks.
