Told from the perspective of Kate, her mother Nora, and Ivy, the woman Kate helps to take care of, this dual-timeline narration focuses on perceived responsibility and its effect on happiness and fulfillment.

Kate is a widow who chooses to withdraw to a small island looking for peace. There she meets Ivy, a senior with an exciting and rocky past and a much different outlook on life. And across the entire story is Nora, Kate’s mother, a woman who lives her life by society’s rules and doesn’t appreciate anyone rocking the boat.

I loved how each character was portrayed and the ARC that they each went through as the book progressed. I didn’t feel that the relationships between any of the 3 were very strong so the tie-in’s of why they were all in the same story made little sense to me. It’s almost as if each woman had her own story and the author tried to mesh them all together with a few small links here and there.

The three stories separately were interesting but I think there could have been stronger links between the characters. The ending also felt a little rushed to me.

It was an overall good women’s fiction read. The narrator for the audiobook had a pleasant voice.

Thank you to #NetGalley for providing this book. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy and all views expressed are only my honest opinion.
