APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Helen Fisher’s debut novel is rather unique. It’s a tale involving time-travel that never feels fantastical. Instead, it’s a tender, incredibly moving story about the bond between mothers and daughters, and the seismic, eternal power of grief. Our hero is Faye—a relatively happy, fulfilled woman whose questions and feelings around her mother’s death become all the more prominent after she has children of her own. Suddenly, Faye is able to return to her ’70s childhood home. She’s offered the chance to solve many of the great unanswered questions that are perhaps holding her back, but it soon becomes clear there will be a steep price for this enlightenment.
