“When Lucy Jarrett returns to her childhood home in upstate New York to visit her mother, she is forced to confront the ghosts of her past. Lucy discovers that an ancestor was involved in the suffragette movement and was romantically connected with a well-known stained glass artist, even while Lucy herself reconnects with a former boyfriend who is now a local stained glass artist. In researching the past, Lucy must come to terms with her present, including confronting her long-withheld grief over her father's death under mysterious circumstances. This is a captivating novel from the best-selling author of The Memory Keeper's Daughter.”
