Description
A compelling novel about one woman's search for the truth from the author of You Were Meant For Me.

After suffering a sudden, traumatic loss, historical novelist Susannah Gilmore decides to uproot her life--and the lives of her two children--and leave their beloved Brooklyn for the little town of Eastwood, New Hampshire.
While the trio adjusts to their new surroundings, Susannah is captivated by an unexpected find in her late parents' home: an unsigned love note addressed to her mother, in handwriting that is most definitely not her father's.
Reeling from the thought that she never really knew her mother, Susannah finds mysteries everywhere she looks: in her daughter's friendship with an older neighbor, in a charismatic local man to whom she's powerfully drawn, and in an eighteenth century crime she's researching for her next book. Compelled to dig into her mother's past, Susannah discovers even more secrets, ones that surpass any fiction she could ever put to paper...
