Publisher's Summary

Three generations of women come together in this addictive debut full of family secrets, heart-wrenching drama, and the promise of second chances.

Corfu, 1942: To 16-year-old Sarah Batis, the Nazis are a distant danger - of far greater threat is the opposing needs of her heart and her people. Tradition demands that Sarah marry a Jewish man. Only Sarah has fallen in love with a fisherman outside their community. And when the Nazis invade, Sarah must watch from afar as her family is taken away....

Corfu, 2004: Sarah's daughter, Bea, has built a happy life with a steadfast husband and two independent daughters. Their summers on the Greek island with the Winn family appear idyllic, especially the love that blossoms between Bea's daughter Joey and Leo Winn. But there is a secret threatening their beach paradise. 

Florida, 2019: Joey is only days away from marrying the nice Jewish man her family adores. The arrival of Leo, Joey's first love, sends her reeling. Even after 15 years, the attraction between them burns bright - but Leo isn't looking for a happy reunion. He's there to reveal why he really broke up with her during their last summer together. 

Weddings have a way of bringing out the best - and worst - in those you love the most. And as the revelations of her family flood to the surface, what Joey learns will either bring them closer together...or tear them apart forever.

Couldn’t stop (reading) listening!

A beautiful story of 3 generations of women. I was transported to Greece and felt really connected to the characters. Set during the Holocaust and in present day, this story about true love captures all the emotions, thoughts and logic (or lack-there-of) that one feels when in love. Fantastically written! I highly recommended it!! Hope it becomes a movie!
