When Lucy Barton’s ex-husband asks her to join him on a trip to investigate a recently uncovered family secret, she agrees to accompany him. “What happens next is nothing less than another example of what Hilary Mantel has called Elizabeth Strout’s ‘perfect attunement to the human condition.'” (Goodreads) The Pulitzer Prize winning author “explores William and Lucy’s relationship, past and present, with impressive nuance and subtlety–including their early attraction, their missteps, their deep, abiding memories and ties, and their lingering susceptibility, vulnerability, and dependence on each other.” (Amazon overview)
