Set in the charming town of Peachtree Bluff, “a compelling, beautifully drawn tale of love, hope, and small-town secrets” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) following a trio of sisters and their mother as they discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves but also how they fit together as a family.
Sloane’s world crumbles after receiving the news that her military husband is missing in action.
She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.
Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.
But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.
