When Joely Doyle was old enough she packed her bags, left home, and set out to create her own identity—away from the faded photographs of the father she never knew, and the faded dreams of her mother Mimi who waited forever thereafter for his return.
Now, a pleading phone call from her estranged sister Cat has urged Joely back to Maine for their mother's bittersweet, final days.

But the more she discovers of her sister's life, her father's secrets, and her mother's sacrifices, the closer she comes to understanding the twists of fate that shaped her past, and the choices she must now make that will define her future
