A debut for fans of Anissa Gray, Brit Bennet, and Celeste Ng!

This is a glimpse inside a set of families intricately tied together and all trying to keep afloat featuring three women forced to return to their small town of River Bend, in Southwest Michigan. There is Linda who is leaving her husband (who she never should have married) to return to her step-grandmother’s home, Beth a biracial divorcee with two teenage children and moving back in with her white father who didn’t protect her as a child, and Paula the estranged mother of Linda and two sisters who is hoping to finally divorce her husband. With their returns secrets will be kept, shared, and shouted to the world as each woman tries to understand love and loss—be it between parent and child, siblings, or romantic. This one’s for fans of Anissa Gray, Brit Bennet, and Celeste Ng.
