O. Henry Award-winning author Ann Packer made a huge splash with her bestselling debut novel The Dive From Clausen’s Pier. Scott Turow called it, “one of those small miracles that reinforce our faith in fiction…witty, tragic, and touching, and beguiling from its first page.” Packer clearly has a knack for writing stories that feature evolving, complex characters, and make us ponder what we would do if facing the same challenges they do. Her stunning new novel delves into the lives of two women, their lifelong friendship, and the crisis that threatens to tear them apart.
Liz and Sarabeth were childhood friends. But it wasn’t until Sarabeth’s mother committed suicide—and she came to live with Liz’s family—that the two 16-year-olds became like sisters. In the decades that followed, they chose different life paths: Liz got married and had two children; Sarabeth struggled through a series of volatile love affairs. Through it all they remained each other’s rock. But when tragedy strikes at the heart of Liz’s family, she learns surprising things about her longtime friend—things that will change the course of their relationship forever.
