This book is one that transcends the typical YA book and I think would be truly enjoyed by anyone at ANY age. First off the writing is stunning, the prose is poetic but not annoyingly so. The whole story is totally engaging and full of characters that you wish were real. I'm usually impatient as I read the non-romance parts of books, but that was not the case here. I loved all of it.

This is a story of the countless ways we get love wrong. And why, despite every disappointment, we keep fighting to get it right.

Jennifer must do the impossible – bring her mother home. When a family is torn apart by death, two sisters take violently divergent paths and the story of their family appears to end terribly and abruptly. Two decades later Jennifer never dreams that the photo she finds stuck between the pages of a neglected book will tear open a gaping wound to her mother’s secret past. Abandoning her comfortable life with her parents and best friend in the wheat fields of Nebraska, Jennifer’s quest for a hidden aunt leads her to the untamed coast of Maine where she struggles to understand why her mother lied to her for sixteen years.

Across the grey, rocky cove she meets Nathan Moore, the young, reluctant genius surrounded by women who need him to be brother, father, friend, provider, protector and now, first love. The stories, varied, hilarious, and heartbreaking, unfold to paint a striking mural of the shattered past. As Jennifer seeks to piece together her mother’s story, she inadvertently writes one for herself.

A huge thank you to my friend Sara who told me about this book. If you've got a kindle it is really an inexpensive ebook, and if you are a Amazon Prime member it is one of the books you can borrow for free. I really don't think anyone would be disappointed with this one.

This is a totally clean read.
