A powerful and moving tale of family, love and loyalty from the author of the million-copy bestseller THE FLOWERS OF THE FIELD and A FLOWER THAT'S FREE. All families have secrets and many are taken to the grave, but those that aren't can return, generations later, with devastating consequences...For Kate Drake, now a great-grandmother, marriage and family brought peace after years of restless uncertainty.
Now, watching her own grown-up children, it seems the world is a no less complicated place.
Stella, her fiercely independent daughter, and Will, her handsome, self-indulgent son, have challenges of their own to face, while her granddaughter, Evie, is bringing up a son on her own. But when a secret from the past casts its shadow across four generations of the family, a spoiled war veteran gets a second chance, a stubbornly independent woman opens herself to love, and an older one rediscovers it, while a young boy begins to understand the complexities of adult life.
