Full of beauty and sorrow at the same time. Heartbreaking but also uplifting. A tale of despair yet also one of hope. All of these things together make this an unforgettable story.
Hope and Jack have a great life. They have three beautiful daughters, a nice home, a successful business. Happiness. But then tragedy strikes. And they are left with just two daughters. Each family member copes, or doesn’t, in their own way.
A year later, they are at a standstill. Time has put distance between them and their grief, but they haven’t really moved on. Jack loses himself in his lobster fishing. Hope loses herself in the memories of her lost daughter. And the younger girls just go on being kids.
Everything comes to a head when a forgotten part of Jack’s past shows up at their door. High school rivalries are reignited, this time with adult consequences. Through it all Hope and Jack struggle to move past their grief and save their family.
Tragedies happen, families have to find ways to deal with them. Told from alternating perspectives, this book takes us deep inside one family’s grief and their attempts to overcome it. Each family member is dealing with their own struggles along with the collective struggle of the family. It’s beautifully written, almost poetically so. A story I won’t soon forget!
