Publisher's Summary

A hidden past isn’t past at all.

Violet Figg and her sister Trudy have lived a quiet life in Sugar Bend, Alabama, since a night forty years ago that stole Trudy’s voice and cemented Violet’s role as her sister’s fierce and loyal protector. Now Trudy spends her days making sculptures from found objects and speaking through notes written on scraps of paper, while Violet runs their art shop, monitors bird activity up and down the water, and tries not to think of the one great love she gave up to keep her sister safe.

Eighteen-year-old Maya knows where everyone else belongs, but she’s been searching for her own place since her grandmother died seven years ago. Moving in and out of strangers’ houses has left her exhausted. After seeing a flyer on a gas station window for a place called Sugar Bend, Maya chooses to follow the strange pull she feels and finds herself on the doorstep of an art shop called Two Sisters.

When a boat rises to the surface of Little River in the middle of the night, the present and no-longer-buried past collide, and the future becomes uncertain for Maya, Violet, and Trudy. As history creeps continuously closer to the present and old secrets come to light, the sisters must decide to face the truth of what happened that night forty years ago, or risk losing each other and those they’ve come to love.

USA TODAY bestselling author Lauren K. Denton delivers another distinctly Southern story that shimmers with beauty and possibility.

Another great book by Mrs.Denton

I enjoyed this book but found it much like the crawdads book in similarities. It was also not hard to figure out the plot but did keep you guessing on many subjects . I always enjoy how she uses items to tell a story through the book . Overall a good book but not her best . 4 out of 5 stars .

Just okay

Well written but lacks depth and an actual plot, no twists or turns, I kept expecting something unexpected to happen and it never does, very boring for a mystery, wish I hadn’t wasted the credit.

Lauren K. Denton has done it again!

I love every one of this author's books, but the extra edge and mystery in this book delivers a whole new experience! Great storytelling! A definite page-turner and must read!

Tedious and unimaginative

A decent sounding premise for a story. The execution was excruciatingly dull and tiresome. There was nothing there to flesh out the summary. Like being promised a meal but then dining on nothing but flavorless broth.
