The New York Times bestselling author of A Long Time Gone now explores a Southern family's buried history, which will change the life of the woman who unearths it, secret by shattering secret. It has been two years since the death of Merritt Heyward's husband, Cal, when she receives unexpected news-Cal's family home in Beaufort, South Carolina, bequeathed by Cal's reclusive grandmother, now belongs to Merritt. Charting the course of an uncertain life-and feeling guilt from her husband's tragic death-Merritt travels from her home in Maine to Beaufort, where the secrets of Cal's unspoken-of past reside among the pluff mud and jasmine of the ancestral Heyward home on the Bluff. This unknown legacy, now Merritt's, will change and define her as she navigates her new life-a new life complicated by the arrival of her too young stepmother and ten-year-old half-brother. Soon, in this house of strangers, Merritt is forced into unraveling the Heyward family past as she faces her own fears and finds the healing she needs in the salt air of the Low Country.

I liked this story. I found it fairly predictable. The big secret was good. But much of it reminded me of a romance novel which is not my favorite genre. It is a nice story. And if you are a fan of romance novels, it would be a good book for you. It has one of those neatly tied up endings. I was really ready for it to end long before it did.

The narrator made the story come alive. The ending came to soon. I hope there’s a part 2. I’ll look for more books with this narrator.

I really enjoyed the book. The events of how Merit and Cal met in the book were so unexpected. Some of the story line was predictable though once Merit moved to Beaufort SC and met Gibbs as well as her interaction with her step mom.
