At thirty-one, Ellen Barrett has already won a Pulitzer prize. Sadly, though, her skill as a journalist far surpasses her ability to sort out her troubled past, so she's less than eager to return to picturesque Petoskey, Michigan, for her beloved father's funeral. When she most needs comfort, her husband is distant and her siblings antagonistic -- and the solace an old sweetheart offers is almost too much to resist. In the end, going home to the shores of Little Traverse Bay is an emotional and spiritual journey for Ellen -- a rediscovery of what is truly important and eternal in her life.

User Review  - Tammy - Goodreads

I could not relate to the characters in this book. I dreaded picking it up and finally quit on page 300 (out of 401) because I really didn't care what happened. I have no idea why this book has a rating of 4+ stars. Read full review
