From the beloved New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice comes a heartwarming yet heart-wrenching portrait of three far-flung sisters who come home to Martha’s Vineyard one last time to say goodbye to the family beach house. Memories of their grandmother, mother, and their Irish father, who sailed away the year Dar, the oldest, turned twelve, rise up and expose the fine cracks in their family myth—especially when a cache of old letters reveals enough truth to send them back to their ancestral homeland.

Described by critics as “a beautiful blend of love and humor, with a little bit of magic thrown in,” and “a rare combination of realism and romance,” Rice’s books often center on love, family, nature and the sea.  She is the author of thirty novels including twenty-two consecutive New York Times bestsellers.  Five of her books have been made into movies and mini-series, and her work has also been featured at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles and in several off-Broadway theatre productions.  Born and raised in Connecticut, she still has her family beach house in Old Lyme.
