Summary

Summary

Peterson Presents a Compelling Contemporary Tale

When her father orchestrates a surprise trip to the summer house of her childhood, Bailee Cooper is unprepared for what follows. What is intended to be a happy reunion for Bailee and her sisters, Geena and Piper, quickly becomes shrouded by memories from the past.

Together again, the three sisters sift through their recollections of fifteen years ago...of an ill mother, and of their father making a desperate choice. They vowed, as children, to be silent--but one sister believes the truth must now be revealed. Yet can they trust their memories?

Mark Delahunt arrives in the wake of this emotional turmoil. Determined to win Bailee's affection, Mark becomes the strong fortress for her in this time of confusion, and what was once a tentative promise begins to take root and grow. Caught between the past and an uncertain future, can Bailee let God guide her to heal the past and ultimately to embrace love?

Booklist Review

Emotions abound in the latest contemporary offering from renowned Christian fiction author Peterson. The lives of sisters Bailee, Geena, and Piper Cooper are shrouded in secrecy and shame. As they struggle with a venomous cocktail of childhood memories, a request to return to the beach house of their youth is certain to unearth what they fear the most, and one thing is assured: their family will never be the same again. The arrival of Mark Delahunt provides Bailee with a welcome distraction, and he provides a sturdy shoulder to lean on. As facts are revealed and each character tries to accept the truth, readers will be riveted by Peterson's skill in building mystery while deftly addressing the stigma associated with mental illness. This careful handling of a sensitive subject by one of inspirational fiction's top writers will take fans to places often left unexplored in this genre, thus opening new doors for future novels.--Ponder, Elizabeth Copyright 2010 Booklist
