Three generations, one heartbreaking secret—and the past about to be uncovered…
Jess Penhaligon is on her way to London to receive an award for her botanical painting. Hosting her will be Kate, who gladly welcomes her into her home. Jess’ own family fell apart several years ago, so she is grateful for Kate’s friendliness—and for her close unit of extended family and friends, who embrace Jess just as warmly.
As the group begins reminiscing about their pasts and sharing their stories with Jess, it becomes apparent that her family history may be linked with theirs. Long-buried secrets from past generations are being uncovered, but at what cost have they been kept hidden?
“Evocatively written, this book paints the seasons and scenes around the River Tamar on the boundary of Devon and Cornwall and is populated with warm, believable characters whom you’ll sorely miss when you’ve finished reading it.”—Candis
