"The life Olivia Harper always dreamed of isn't so dreamy these days. The 16-hour work days are unfulfilling and so are things with her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when she hears that her estranged mother, Juliet, has been seriously injured in a car accident, Liv has no choice but to pack up her life and head home to beautiful Cape Sanctuary on the Northern California coast. It's just for a few months-that's what Liv keeps telling herself. But the closer she gets to Cape Sanctuary, the painful memories start flooding back: Natalie, her vibrant, passionate older sister who downward-spiraled into addiction. The fights with her mother who enabled her sister at every turn. The overdose that took Natalie, leaving her now-teenaged daughter, Caitlin, an orphan. As Liv tries to balance her own needs with those of her injured mother and an obstinate, resentful fifteen-year-old, it becomes clear that all three Harper women have been keeping heartbreaking secrets from one another. And as those secrets are revealed, Liv, Juliet, and Caitlin will see that it's never too late-or too early-to heal family wounds and find forgiveness" -- Amazon.com

Thayne (The Cliff House, 2019) uses her tried-and-true, never trite or tired approach in her latest drama. Olivia Harper leaves her busy life in Seattle to head back to Cape Sanctuary, where her mother, Juliet, quite vibrant in her fifties, has been seriously injured in a fall from a ladder in the family garden center business. Olivia has a lot of baggage from her childhood. She felt abandoned after her father died in a fire, and her mother devoted herself to the business and coping with the problems of Olivia's older sister, who went off the deep end, using drugs, getting pregnant, dying of an overdose, and leaving behind a little girl, Caitlin, who is now in her teens. The three generations of Harper women are keeping secrets from themselves as well as from others. While Olivia hides the trauma she is suffering that stems from something that happened in Seattle, Caitlin searches for her unknown father, and Juliet's secret keeps her isolated from those who love her. Hope lies in steadfast male friends, who pose positive possibilities.--Diana Tixier Herald Copyright 2020 Booklist
