Publisher Description

From the bestselling author of the hit Netflix series Virgin River!  

They lived for summers at the family lake house until an accident changed everything. 

That was then…

For the Hempsteads, two sisters who married two brothers and had three daughters each, summers were idyllic. The women would escape the city the moment school was out to gather at the family house on Lake Waseka. It was a magical place, a haven where they were happy and carefree. All of their problems drifted away as the days passed in sun-dappled contentment. Until the summer that changed everything.

This is now…

After an accidental drowning turned the lake house into a site of tragedy and grief, it was closed up. For good. None of the Hempstead women speak of what happened that summer, and relationships between them are uneasy at best to hurtful at worst. But in the face of new challenges, one woman is determined to draw her family together again, and the only way that can happen is to return to the lake and face the truth.

An unforgettable story about a family learning to accept the past, to forgive and to love each other again.

Don't miss Robyn Carr's next uplifting novel, The Friendship Club, where four women come together at a tumultuous time in their lives, forging an unbreakable bond that will leave them all forever changed—available January 2024!

Thought provoking

Wow, what a wonderful book! Haven’t read one such as this in along time. We all have our crazy upside down lives, nice to read how family all came together in the end. Loved it, will definitely read it again in the future.

Wonderful book

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The family dysfunctions and eventual resolutions were well handled and suspenseful enough to keep me turning pages. One of her best books. Well done Robyn Carr!
