Summary
  • "A richly compelling and deeply moving novel that traces the converging lives of a young boy who witnesses a brutal murder, the doctor who tends to him, and an elderly woman guarding her long buried past. It seems like just another night shift for Lucy, an overworked ER physician in Providence, Rhode Island, until six-year-old Ben is brought in as the sole survivor from a horrifying crime scene. He's traumatized and wordless; everything he knows has been taken from him in an afternoon. It's not clear what he saw, or what he remembers. Lucy, who's grappling with a personal upheaval of her own, feels a profound, unexpected connection to the little boy. She wants to help him ... but will recovering his memory heal him, or damage him further? Across town, Clare will soon be turning one hundred years old. She has long believed that the lifetime of secrets she's been keeping don't matter to anyone anymore, but a surprising encounter makes her realize that the time has come to tell her story. As Ben, Lucy, and Clare struggle to confront the events that shattered their lives, something stronger than fate is working to bring them together."--
  • "A novel set in Rhode Island over the course of a century about a young boy, an ER doctor, and an elderly woman, and how their lives converge in the aftermath of a brutal murder"--
