From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train, and the critically acclaimed author of Bird in Hand and The Way Life Should Be, comes a novel about buried secrets and the redemptive power of forgiveness—includes a special PS section featuring insights, interviews, and more.

Cassie Simon is a struggling artist living in New York City.  When she receives a call from a magistrate in Sweetwater, TN, telling her she has inherited sixty acres of land from her grandfather, whom she never knew, she takes it as a sign: it’s time for a change.  She moves into the house where her mother, Ellen, was born—and where she died tragically when Cassie was three.

From the moment she arrives in Sweetwater, Cassie is overwhelmed by the indelible mark her mother’s memory had left behind.  As she delves into the thicket of mystery that surrounds her mother’s death, Cassie begins to understand the desperate measures the human heart is capable of.

This book, frankly, was terrible. The writing itself is excellent, but the characters are unlikable and have no redeeming qualities. The plot is uninteresting and the sorry attempt at a mystery is undeveloped and bland. Also, the romantic scenes felt unnatural and pointless to what the focus was supposed to be. Would not recommend. Try Orphan Train instead.

Pretty good, but not her best in my opinion. What a family, though! Yikes. If you ever thought your own family was a little divisive, needy, envious, belligerent, and vindictive, then meet Grandma and her daughter. Wow.

A good read. Kept my interest

I enjoyed the way the author made me want to keep reading to discover the truth about the family. It was mysterious. Cassie's love interest was a bit unnerving to me. I really did NOT like the ending! The author just seemed to want to end the story without tying up all the story lines.
