From the New York Times bestselling author of the Tradd Street novels comes a story that takes one woman on a journey into a secret past, and a life she never expected... From the time she was twelve, Julie Holt knew what a random tragedy could do to a family. At that tender age, her little sister disappeared--never to be found. It was a loss that slowly eroded the family bonds she once relied on. As an adult with a prestigious job in the arts, Julie meets a struggling artist who reminds her so much of her sister, she can't help feeling protective. It is a friendship that begins a long and painful process of healing for Julie, leading her to a house on the Gulf Coast, ravaged by hurricane Katrina, and to stories of family that take her deep into the past.

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Tradd Street novels comes the story of one woman's journey into a secret past—and a life she never expected on the ravaged coast of Biloxi, Mississippi...
Working at an auction house in New York, Julie Holt meets a struggling artist and single mother who reminds her very much of her missing younger sister. Monica Guidry paints a vivid picture of her Southern family through stories, but never says why or how she lost contact with them. And she has another secret: a heart condition that will soon take her life.
Feeling as if she's lost her sister a second time, Julie inherits from Monica an antique portrait—as well as custody of her young son. Taking him to Biloxi, Mississippi, to meet the family he's never known, Julie discovers a connection of her own. The portrait, of an old Guidry relative, was done by her great-grandfather—and unlocks a surprising family history....
