The highly anticipated new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Memory Keeper's Daughter

At a crossroads in her life, Lucy Jarrett returns home from Japan, only to find herself haunted by her father's unresolved death a decade ago. Old longings stirred up by Keegan Fall, a local glass artist who was once her passionate first love, lead her into the unexpected. Late one night, as she paces the hallways of her family's rambling lakeside house, she discovers, locked in a window seat, a collection of objects that first appear to be useless curiosities, but soon reveal a deeper and more complex family past. As Lucy discovers and explores the traces of her lineage, the family story she has always known is shattered. Lucy's quest for the truth reconfigures her family's history, links her to a unique slice of the suffragette movement, and yields dramatic insights that embolden her to live freely.

Kim Edwards is the author of the New York Times bestseller The Memory Keeper's Daughter and a collection of short stories, The Secrets of a Fire King. Her honors include the Whiting Award and the Nelson Algren Award, as well as the Kentucky Literary Award, a National Magazine Award, and a grant from the NEA. She is Associate Professor of English at the University of Kentucky.
