From the best-selling author of The Girl You Left Behind, Walk Your Way and Stardust, in a romantic love story set in a sleepy beach town. Lysa McCullen will never be able to leave her past behind as she would like. But the pristine beaches and close-knit community of the town of Silver Bay allow her the freedom and security she longs for - if not for herself, then for her daughter Hannah. Except then he gets to stay at her aunt Mike Dormer's hotel. The cold-tempered Englishman, with his sophisticated clothes and peaceful eyes, threatens to shatter everything that Lisa has worked so hard to protect: not only the family business and the bay that serves as a home for her beloved whales, but also her deep conviction that she never deserves to be loved again. Mike Dormer, on the other hand, is looking forward to another routine business trip. He came to the town of God's power with the goal of establishing a luxury resort on the beach. But it slowly dawns on him that the eccentric residents of the falling Silver Bay Hotel - and especially the enigmatic Lisa McAllen - succeed in penetrating his heart. While the fight for the town's beauty intensifies, the universes of Mike and Lisa collide in a dizzying and captivating plot, full of humor and generosity as only Jojo Moyes knows how to brew.
