Publisher's Summary

Laura Preston is a reclusive artist at odds with her older sister, Bea, as their elegant, formidable mother slowly slides into dementia. When a stranger contacts Laura claiming to be her brother who disappeared 40 years earlier when the family lived in Bangkok, Laura ignores Bea's warnings of a scam and flies to Thailand to see if it can be true. But meeting him in person leads to more questions than answers.

Alternating between past and present as all of the secrets are revealed, What Could Be Saved is an unforgettable story about a family shattered by loss and betrayal, and the beauty that can exist even in the midst of brokenness.
