From Jean Reynolds Page—the critically acclaimed author of The Space Between Before and After and one of the most compelling voices in contemporary women's fiction—comes a dazzling novel of loss and redemption, of relationships that damage and those that heal.

Thirty-nine and pregnant by a man she's decided to leave behind in California, Jules' life is changing. Always the protected daughter, she must now relinquish that role and prepare to be a mother herself. But her efforts are upstaged by shocking allegations from a local teen in her North Carolina hometown. The boy has accused her of what the police are calling “inappropriate sexual contact.” Three men rally in her defense: Lincoln, her brother, who flies in from New York to help her; Sam, her high school boyfriend, who after so many years still offers unconditional support; and Walt, the uncle of the teen, who charms Jules with his intelligence and unanticipated kindness.

Her search for the truth about the troubled teenager becomes, for Jules, a first step toward discovering the woman she wishes to be. But with so many wrong choices behind her, how can she trust herself with the future of her unborn child?

Jules and Lincoln discover it's time to grow up -- finally. The crises of a summer can be traced to the relationships and choices of the past, and families and friends come together. I would have liked to see more depth in the characters, but it was a relaxing read that doesn't ask the reader to work too hard. But what's with the cover? Nothing about beaches in the story....I guess it's just a marketing ploy.

She's done it again! I love this author as much as Piccoult and Josilyn Jackson. Always look forward to new books from Page. This one keeps the reader on the edge of their seats while also relating to the small southern town. You won't be disappointed.
