From the author of The Last Beach Bungalow: a portrait of a family-in all its heartbreaking complexity.

Then, as she helps prepare a retrospective of her famous father's photographs, Claire uncovers revelations about him that change everything she believes about herself as a mother, a daughter, and an artist...
