If you’ve read and liked Patricia Gaffney or Nancy Thayer novels, this one is right up your alley. Strong female characters making up a tight knit family, overcoming adversity.

Deborah R.


This is a beautiful and enriching story of love, friendship, loss, forgiveness and redemption… This novel certainly feels more like a family friend, one that I will revisit time and time again.


A tender, poignant, purposeful story that deals with the pain and process of addiction. The characters are so real, they become your friends.
