A compassionate and insightful novel about family, broken dreams, and holding on to everything in life that matters.
Five cousins must band together to decide the future of their shared inheritance—the family’s sprawling property in Stowe, Vermont—but with each at a different place in life, reaching a unanimous decision seems unlikely.
Penny struggles with depression and craves stability in an unstable world. Halsey is divorced, raising her child, and contending with an unexpected realization about herself. Irresponsible William can be counted on only to fall in love as capriciously as he falls out of it. And both Laurie and Chris are floundering after betrayals—hers professional, his personal. With little in common except childhood memories, the five face impossible choices. It’s going to take sacrifice, compromise, and a plan for moving forward they can all agree to. Until then, the fate of the Nolan family compound is as uncertain as their paths in life.
As five lives in flux converge and tensions run high, the cousins will have to rely on each other if they’re to have any hope of preserving the past. From the author of All Are Welcome comes a novel about a family legacy worth fighting for.
“Narrator Christina Traister brings to life each of the five cousins in all their complexities. She gives each their own personality and fully communicates their struggles and triumphs, helping readers to further distinguish among them. A heartwarming tale of family, dreams, and what matters most when everything is laid bare.”—Library Journal
“The drama is richly realized and believable in its messiness. The result is an excruciatingly realistic portrayal of the power of family to infuriate and hearten.”—Publishers Weekly
“[Liz] Parker ably captures nuanced familial relationships with affection and a bit of an edge. She manages a breezy tone while plumbing some complicated depths, resulting in a compulsively readable, emotionally satisfying second novel.”—Booklist
