'I adore Sarah Jio's novels.' Santa Montefiore
It's time for a long-buried secret to be revealed...
Fleeing an East Coast life marred by tragedy, Ada Santorini takes up residence on Boat Street, a floating community on Seattle's Lake Union. Moving into houseboat number seven Ada is in search of inspiration and new opportunities.
When she discovers a trunk left behind by a woman named, Penny Wentworth, she is intrigued to discover that this young newlywed lived on the boat half a century earlier and is immediately drawn into Penny;s long lost story. Ever-curious, Ada longs to know her predecessor's fate, but does not suspect that Penny's mysterious past and her own clouded future are destined to converge...
A haunting and gripping story of family loyalties, the cost of love and a heartbreaking secret a community will do anything to protect. Perfect for fans of Amanda Prowse and Barbara O'Neal.
