'A pitch-perfect story about the ways we recover love in the strangest places' REBECCA SERLE

An indie musician reeling from tragedy reconnects with her estranged father on a week-long cruise in this tale of grief, fame, and love from bestselling author Jennifer E. Smith.


Greta James's rise to indie stardom was hard-won. Before she graced magazine covers and played to sold out venues, she spent her girlhood practicing her guitar in the family garage, full of big dreams and determination. Her first fan was her mother, Helen, who always encouraged Greta to follow her heart. But her father, Conrad, was less supportive; he saw only a precarious road ahead for his daughter, and always pushed her to make more practical choices. Greta has spent her life trying to prove him wrong.

But three months after her mother's sudden death and an onstage meltdown that went viral for all the wrong reasons, Greta reluctantly agrees to accompany her father on the week-long Alaskan cruise her parents had booked to celebrate their fortieth anniversary.

It could be their last chance to heal old wounds and forge a new relationship in the wake of such loss. But the trip will also prove to be a voyage of discovery for them both, as well as for Ben Wilder, a historian also struggling with a major upheaval in his life.

As Greta works to build back her confidence, and Ben confronts an uncertain future, they find themselves relying on each other to make sense of life's difficult, unexpected choices. And in the end, Greta must face the biggest challenge of all: can she find a way back to her music while also making peace with those who love her?
