From well-loved womenA??s fiction writer Kristyn Kusek Lewis comes a breakout novel about a woman moving to a small community and uncovering the many secrets that hide behind closed doorsA??perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty and Elin Hilderbrand.
Greyhill, VirginiaA??refuge of old money, old mansions, and old-fashioned ideas about who belongs and who doesnA??tA??just got a few new residents. When Bess Warner arrives in town with her husband Cole and their kids, she thinks she knows what to expect. Sure, moving to ColeA??s small hometown means sheA??ll have to live across the street from her mother-in-law, and yes, thereA??s going to be a lot to learn as they take over ColeA??s familyA??s inn-keeping business, but Bess believes it will be the perfect escape from Washington. She needs it to be. After losing her White House job under a cloud of scandal, she hardly knows who she is anymore.
But Bess quickly discovers that fitting in is easier said than done. Instead of the simpler life sheA??d banked on, she finds herself preoccupied by barbed questions from gossipy locals and her own worries over how her twins are acclimating at the townA??s elite private school. When the opportunity to write an article for the Washington PostA??s lifestyle supplement falls into BessA??s lap, she thinks it might finally be her opportunity to find her footing hereA?¦even if the subject of the piece is GreyhillA??s most notorious resident.
Susannah A??CricketA? Lane, fruit of the townA??s deepest-rooted family tree, is a special sort of outsider, having just returned to Greyhill from New York after a decades-long hiatus. The long absence has always been the subject of suspicion, not that the eccentric Susannah cares what anyone thinks; as a matter of fact, she seems bent on antagonizing as many people as possible. But is Susannah being sincere with BessA??or is she using their strangely intense interview sessions for her to further an agenda that includes peeling back the layers of GreyhillA??s darkest secrets?
As Bess discovers unsettling truths about Susannah and Greyhill at large, ones that bring her into the secrets of prior generations, she begins to learn how difficult it is to start over in a town that runs on talk, and that sometimes, the best way to find yourself is to uncover what everyone around you is hiding...
