A moving account of a woman’s awakening.
Nearly a year after the sudden death of her 21-year-old daughter, Mary Devere leaves her New York City Upper East Side apartment to spend the summer on the coastal Kilkare Island, New Jersey, while her neurosurgeon husband travels to Europe for work.
After a pit bull accidentally knocks Mary down at the island’s dog park, Mary develops a close friendship with the dog’s foster owner Juliet, a young pregnant woman her daughter’s age, and serendipitously, the daughter of Mary’s first love, a Mexican man named Antonio.
Mary finds herself navigating her grief surrounding the loss of her only child, questioning her sacrifices to live a life she thought she should, and confronting the memories of the difficult choice she made as a young woman that changed the course of her life, all while placing herself back in the arms of Antonio.
