Summary
In the late '70s, Irene Kelley was an artist, Robert a businessman; each possessed by dynamism and vibrancy. But with two young boys to care for, Irene finds herself confined by the very things she'd dreamed of having. Robert, pressured by Irene's demands, risks the family business to pursue a fail-safe real estate opportunity. Twenty years later their sons, Nathan and Andrew, are drawn back to confront a fateful diagnosis. Revisiting the Cape Cod of their childhood, the ghosts of the past threaten to upend the tenuous peace of the present
Summary
Returning to the small town of their childhoods in the aftermath of their father's release from white-collar prison and their mother's fateful diagnosis, two young men find themselves atoning for the mistakes of their parents in order to resolve long-standing family dynamics
