Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jenny and Amanda Ruth were best friends in a small Alabama town until eighteen-years-old Amanda Ruth was murdered. Now, fourteen years later, Jenny has traveled with her husband to China to scatter Amanda Ruth’s ashes and finally fulfill her friend’s dream of visiting her Chinese father’s homeland. It’s also, Jenny hopes, an opportunity to repair her own troubled marriage. But as she journeys through a foreign landscape, the guilty secrets of Jenny’s past rise up and her life will be inexorably altered.

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Fog (“Highly recommended [for fans of] authors like Jodi Picoult and Jacquelyn Mitchard” —Library Journal, starred review) and No One You Know (“Luminous . . . will keep you thinking long after the last page has been turned”—Family Circle), Michelle Richmond’s stunning novel captivates with its depiction of the powerful intimacies of marriage, friendship, and family that shape our paths and the bonds of home that buoy us—wherever home may be.

Synopsis:

Jenny and her husband Dave take a cruise up the Yangtze River to scatter her murdered best friend's ashes, but the trip quickly evolves into an examination into her flawed marriage, troubled past, and uncertain future.

Synopsis:

Vivid and enlightening . . . Richmond is a writer to watch.--Library Journal

Any time a work of fiction raises our sights to higher truths, as this one does, the writer has done her job. --South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Intelligent, original, complex.--San Francisco Chronicle

From the Trade Paperback edition.
