The heartwarming story of a man primed to go far in life, who first must find his way home

Teddy is a successful Los Angeles lawyer whose charm and political skills have made him a leading U.S. Senate candidate. But behind the golden public persona lie some darker truths: his teenage daughter has barely spoken to him since his divorce from her mother and he has long been bitterly estranged from his own mother.

When his sister asks Teddy to come back to Nantucket before Alzheimer’s steals their mother’s mind entirely, his campaign manager sees it as the perfect opportunity for a mother-son photo op, and Teddy reluctantly agrees to the trip.

Once on Nantucket, Teddy struggles with his mother’s illness and his daughter’s disdain, uncovers some stunning family secrets, and meets a woman who challenges everything he thought he understood about relationships–unexpectedly finding the life he never knew he wanted.

“Recalls another Massachusetts dynasty–a clan of wild boys with political dreams and personal demons. Novelist Jan Goldstein is a wise and wry observer of what has changed beneath the face of American governance, and what never will.”
—Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean
