When their tragic past begins to resurface, can he help her remember the things she cant?
After her mothers death twelve years ago, Lynette Carlisle watched her close-knit family unravel. One by one, her four older siblings left their Nantucket home and never returned. All seem to blame their father for their mothers death, but nobody will talk about that tragic day. And Lynettes memory only speaks through nightmares.
Then Nicholas Cooper returns to Nantucket, bringing the past with him. Once Lynettes adolescent crush, Nick knows more about her mothers death than he lets on. The truth could tear apart his own familyand destroy his fragile friendship with Lynette, the woman he no longer thinks of as a kid sister.
As their fathers failing health and financial concerns bring the Carlisle siblings home, secrets surface that will either restore their shattered relationships or separate the siblings forever. But pulling up anchor on the past propels them into the perfect storm, powerful enough to make them question their faith, their willingness to forgive, and the very truth of all the things they thought they knew.
Catherine West writes stories of hope and healing from her island home in Bermuda. When she's not at the computer working on her next story, you can find her taking her Border collie for long walks on the beach or tending to her roses and orchids. She and her husband have two grown children. Visit her online at CatherineJWest.com, Facebook: CatherineJWest, and Twitter: @CathWest.
Wests book is a contemplative tale about family secrets . Overall, its an engrossing and ultimately moving novel filled with mystery, romance and drama. ---4-starred review
'West (Yesterdays Tomorrow) brings to life a familiar plot centered on memories of past family trauma papered over by secrets. West is a good painter of atmosphere, making the foggy past ever so slightly sinister. The Carlisle family probably has one troubled child too many, diluting the story and requiring too many quick resolutions of underdeveloped plot threads and characterizations. But dysfunctional families are the irresistible hook of many novels, and West manages the central tensions well.'
