Following the success of IF YOU ONLY KNEW and ON SECOND THOUGHT comes the highly anticipated new novel by New York Times bestselling author Higgins; a funny and bittersweet story of a woman who returns to her hometown after a decade's absence hoping to resuscitate her relationship with her family, only to discover that her homecoming is not as welcome as she had imagined. It's been over a decade since Nora left her hometown of Scupper Island, Maine, and very seldom looked back. She's carved out a successful life in Boston where no one knows her as the awkward girl with the delinquent sister and the dad who left, but a not-as-dramatic-as-it-sounds brush with death has her taking stock of her life. Inspired to reconnect with her prickly mother and snarky teenage niece, Nora returns home for the summer, where she's forced to face the people she's spent the last ten years trying to avoid, and where some revelations about her family could either heal her, or send her scrambling back to Boston on the next ferry.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Nora has lots to unpack and sift through, but figuring out who she is and wants to be is a powerful, entertaining journey. Balancing emotion, humor, and a redemptive theme, Higgins hits all the right notes with precision, perception, and panache.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“The first-person point of view, coupled with a skilled narration by Xe Sands, immediately draws the listener into Nora Stuart’s story…Sands smartly voices the Maine accent of Nora’s mother and other islanders. Sands has the listener laughing as she brings the comedic elements alive and pulls their heartstrings at the sad moments, both of which give the story rich dimension. Because of the skillful narration, listeners themselves will want to hop the ferry to Scupper Island, along with Nora. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
