An intimate, emotionally powerful saga following five young women as they realize that no matter the men they choose, the careers they pursue, or the children they raise, the only constant is home.

Theodora has lived through World War II, through the Nazi occupation of Greece, and through her husband's death. Now she endures the twenty-year-long silence of her daughters' absence. They've married, traveled the world, and courted romance, fame, and even tragedy. But as they become modern, independent women in pursuit of their dreams, Theodora knows they need her-- and each other-- more than ever. Have they forgotten their childhood house in its tiny village, or will their hearts finally lead them home?
