About this Book:

In a revelation of memory and unflinching insight, prompted by the death of her parents, author Deborah Joy Corey probes the complex bonds between family, lovers, and neighbors that shaped her sense of identity: then, as a girl growing up in rural New Brunswick, and now as a wife and mother living on the coast of Maine. With astonishing skill and delicacy, she weaves a story of faith and transcendence, of loyalty and regret, and shows us how––despite the passage of time and a world fraught with disillusion––wonder prevails and love sustains.


"The writing is exquisite, the invitation into childhood terrain irresistible." - Marjorie Simmins, Atlantic Books Today
