From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train comes a novel about friendship and the memories that haunt us

On the night of her high school graduation, Kathryn Campbell sits around a bonfire with her four closest friends, including the beautiful but erratic Jennifer. "I'll be fine," Jennifer says, as she walks away from the dying embers and towards the darkness of the woods. She never comes back.

Ten years later, Kathryn has tried to build a life for herself, with a marriage and a career as a journalist, but she still feels the conspicuous void of Jennifer's disappearance. When her divorce sends her reeling back to the Maine town where she grew up, she finds herself plunged into a sea of memories. With nothing left to lose, she is determined to answer one simple question: What happened to Jennifer Pelletier?

I hesitated to start this book. After Sweet Water, which was my first read of this author, I tried to prolong my read to this book. But I am glad I didn’t wait that long and decided to give it a try.

After divorcing, Kathryn Campbell returns to her hometown. A place full of memories and a murder’s mystery left to be resolved. As a Journalist, Kathryn is determined to uncover the truth of her best friend disappearance. The story consists of several member of a high school group. After 10 years has pass, Kathryn realizes not everyone is who they appear to be.

I have to admit, the first half of the book was a bit slow for me. Yet the other half was engaging. Like Sweet Water, the mystery of this book is obvious. But that didn’t stop me from reading. It engages you to continue reading to find out how Kathryn would learn the truth. It was light and a fast read, perfect for a beach day. I am glad I decided to give it a try.
