If home is where the heart is, what happens when yours is torn in two?
Big Stone Gap is a sleepy village where people can go their whole lives without leaving. It’s been the home of Ave Maria and her family for generations, but with her daughter now married and living in Italy, Ave realises it’s time to go in search of a new dream. Yet before her journey can begin, her life is turned upside down.
As a lifelong friendship falls apart and an unexpected health crisis threatens her family, Ave Maria’s world is shaken. And when a mysterious stranger comes to town and reveals a long-buried secret, she realises that in order to move forward with her life, first she must face up to the past . . .
The fourth in the bestselling and much-loved BIG STONE GAP series from the bestselling author of The Shoemaker's Wife, a Richard and Judy Book Club pick
