"Nothing short of astonishing. The best writers are brave writers, and Harris has proven herself among those ranks." ??Mateo Askaripour, New York Times bestselling author of Black Buck

A compelling debut that glows with bittersweet heart and touching emotion, deeply interrogating questions of family, redemption, and unconditional love in the sweltering summer heat of Savannah, as two people discover what it means to truly forgive.

It's been eight years since Sara Lancaster left her home in Savannah, Georgia. Eight years since her daughter, Alana, came into this world, following a terrifying sexual assault that left deep emotional wounds Sara would do anything to forget. But when Sara's father falls ill, she's forced to return home and face the ghosts of her past.

While caring for her father and running his bookstore, Sara is desperate to protect her curious, outgoing, genius daughter from the Wylers, the family of the man who assaulted her. Sara thinks she can succeed??her attacker is in prison, his identical twin brother, Jacob, left town years ago, and their mother are all unaware Alana exists. But she soon learns that Jacob has also just returned to Savannah to piece together the fragments of his once-great family. And when their two worlds collide??with the type of force Sara explores in her poetry and Jacob in his astrophysics??they are drawn together in unexpected ways.

"An unforgettable portrayal of familial tragedy, bravery, and redemption." ??Kim Michele Richardson, New York Times bestselling author of The Book Woman's Daughte… (mais)

I enjoyed the book and the plot line, but the father who only speaks in stanzas of poetry was totally annoying. I had to remove one star.
After she is raped and discovers she is pregnant, Sara leaves Savannah to start her life over in Maine where she has some legal protection from her rapist and his powerful family. As her daughter grows older, Sara finds she needs to return to Savannah as her father faces a terminal illness. She discovers that her father has befriended her rapists twin brother and allows him to fund his book store renovation where he continues to work. Both David and Sara develop feelings for each other.

It definitely took me awhile to become vested in this story because the narrator's cadence was sort of robotic. However, the storyline finally grabbed me or maybe I got used to the narrator and finished the book. Again, this was a book recommended by Libby and made available to everyone. The last time they did this , the book which I liked, was so controversial that I was afraid to leave a review! So, maybe Libby likes to sponsor books that get people talking! ( )

I could not out this one down and want to reread it. A rape victim pregnant with the rapist’s child leaves her home to live in Maine for 8 years because laws there protect her daughter from the father. When her own father becomes deathly ill she returns to Savannah for him and must learn to forgive and trust again. ( )

Sara Manchester was raped at 18 years old by a son of a prominent and wealthy family in Savannah, Georgia. Daniel and David Welty are twin brothers with a younger sister, Naomi who was killed at 15 years old in a car crash. Sara takes Daniel to court and he is convicted of rape with the help of David, getting ten years in prison. Eight years later Sara is in Maine with an 8-year-old daughter, Alana. When she discovered she was pregnant, she left town as soon as possible with no intention of ever coming back due to the animosity of the town people and the twins' mother, Birdie, who refuses to admit that Daniel raped Sara. David also left town to become an astrophysicist. One night in Alaska he thinks he sees the ghost of his sister, Naomi, telling him to go back home. Sara is also drawn back to Savannah because her father, the proprietor of the bookshop, Poetry and Prose, has an aneurysm with 3 to 6 months to live. Daniel and David, who has now renamed himself Jacob, are both extremely smart and Alana is a genius. At 8-years-old, she is trying to solve "unsolvable" equations. When Jacob sees Alana, he recognizes her as part of his family since she bears a strong resemblance to his sister. Sara had told no one she was pregnant, fearing interference from Daniel's family. At this time Daniel is going to be released on parole, but he is also battling cancer. The rest of the book deals with Sara, Jacob, and Alana's relationship and the journey to forgiveness by Sara and Jacob. ( )
