Overview

Annabelle has finally made peace with the loss of her beloved husband. Until she finds out he wasn't alone when he died?

Since a plane crash killed her husband two years ago, Annabelle Murphy has found solace in raising her two children. Just when she thinks the grief is behind her, she receives the news that the wreckage of the small plane has been discovered-and that her husband did not die alone. He was with another woman. Suddenly, Annabelle is forced to question everything she once held true.

Sophie Parker knows the woman who was on that plane. A dolphin researcher who has lived a quiet life, Sophie has never let anyone get too close. But when Annabelle shows up on Sophie's doorstep full of painful questions, both women must confront their intertwining pasts-and find the courage to face the truth.

Editorial Reviews

Mary Alice Monroe
Henry's writing is as lush and magical as the Lowcountry she loves.
Dorothea Benton Frank
A triumph!
Topsail Magazine
Storytelling is a gift, and Patti has the gift.
Rockdale Citizen
There is a new voice rising out of the South and it belongs to Patti Callahan Henry.
Charleston City Paper
Writes with a lyrical touch.
Southern Lady
Enfolds us in a story that stays with us long after we've turned the last page.
Publishers Weekly
Two years after Annabelle Murphy's husband Knox dies in a plane crash, the wreckage is found-and with him is the body of a woman. In the disappointing latest South Carolina Lowcountry saga from Henry (following Between the Tides), the firm ground under Annabelle's feet suddenly dissolves with questions as to who the woman was, and what her relationship to Knox might have been. Annabelle's teenaged daughter, Keeley, struggles with feelings of anger and betrayal; her college-aged son Jake mans up as best he can. Her close male friend, Shawn, may turn out to be something else entirely. And into all their lives comes Sofie Milstead, a sad young woman who studies dolphins, who avoids most relationships and who knew who the mysterious woman was. Sofie doesn't explain her connection to Knox until late in the story, and a sense of foreboding pervades the entire read. When all is finally explained, the payoff is meager, and a downer.
