Anna Goodrich is a 28-year-old artist in New York City. When her uncle suddenly dies, she returns home to mid-coast Maine for his funeral. She left seven years earlier, after her mother died, and coming back forces her to face the fractured relationships with her father and her first love that she left behind in her hurt and grief. The fast-paced life she has built for herself in the city, full of gallery openings, parties and restaurants with her boyfriend and friends, conveniently allowed her to forget her pain. But when her uncle leaves her a surprising inheritance, it allows her to face the parts of herself she’s buried. It’s a story about how people and places shape us, how broken we are, and how facing our truest selves, with grace, can transform our hurt and turn it into healing.
