Their lives were a tapestry woven together by love and loss, tragedy and hope. On the windswept coast of Nova Scotia, the rugged community of Cape Hawk has been a blessed refuge to two friends and their young daughters. Lily Malone and nine-year-old Rose have faced down terrors others can only imagine. They are making a new home with a haunted man who will do whatever it takes to protect them. Marisa Taylor is struggling to recapture the music that once colored her world with magic and joy as she tries to build a new life for young Jessica. But now, after years of searching, a man from far away New England has made his way to Cape Hawk -- a man bearing secrets from the past and news of an uncertain future. And in the fullness of summer, each woman will face choices that will irrevocably shape all the seasons to come. For each of these unforgettable characters, this summer of roses will be a time of renewal and transformation that will circle inevitably to lives left behind, a mystery unsolved, and a love reclaimed.
