NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A poignant and tender story of love, loss, passion, and the fragile threads that bind families together from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale

'A beautifully simple, deeply compassionate story.'—Diana Gabaldon

Annie Colwater's only child has just left home for school abroad. On that same day, her husband of twenty years confesses that he's in love with a younger woman. Alone in the house that is no longer a home, Annie comes to the painful realization that for years she has been slowly disappearing. Lonely and afraid, she retreats to Mystic, the small Washington town where she grew up, hoping that there she can reclaim the woman she once was—the woman she is now desperate to become again.

In Mystic, she is reunited with her first love, Nick Delacroix, a recent widower unable to cope with his grieving, too-silent six-year-old daughter, Izzie. Together, the three of them begin to heal, and, at last, Annie learns that she can love without losing herself. But just when she has found a second chance at happiness, her life is turned upside down again, and Annie must make a choice no woman should have to make. . . .

I thoroughly enjoyed this story - it was such an inspiring read. This books shows the importance of self-love, and doing things for yourself. This is far more than just a ‘love’ story, do give it a try. Good job!

I’m a huge Kristin Hannah fan. Her books always make me feel like I know the characters so well. Her story line is always relevant and thought provoking. Another great story.

Not my favorite Kristin Hannah book. I never like to read about couples giving up on their marriages.

Loved this story of hope and redemption. Forgiveness and loss. The narrator could have made this a better story had she put emotion into the words. I felt like she read way too fast the whole way through the book.
