Hardcover & ebook
June 5, 2012 from Crown Publishing Group
were blogs, there were journals. And in them we’d write as we really
were, not as we wanted to appear. But there comes a day when journals
outlive us. And with them, our secrets.
vacation on Great Rock Island was supposed to be a restorative time for
Kate, who’d lost her close friend Elizabeth in a sudden accident. But
when she inherits a trunk of Elizabeth's journals, they reveal a woman
far different than the cheerful wife and mother Kate thought she knew.
complicated portrait of Elizabeth—her troubled upbringing, and her
route to marriage and motherhood—makes Kate question not just their
friendship, but her own deepest beliefs about loyalty and honesty at a
period of uncertainty in her own marriage.
The more Kate reads,
the more she learns the complicated truth of who Elizabeth really was,
and rethinks her own choices as a wife, mother, and professional, and
the legacy she herself would want to leave behind. When an unfamiliar
man’s name appears in the pages, Kate realizes the extent of what she
didn’t know about her friend, including where she was really going on
the day she died.
Set in the anxious summer after the September
11th attacks, this story of two women—their friendship, their marriages,
private ambitions and fears—considers the aspects of ourselves we show
and those we conceal, and the repercussions of our choices.
