Marian Caldwell is a 36-year-old television producer, living her dream in New York City. With a fulfilling career and satisfying relationship, she has convinced everyone, including herself, that her life is just as she wants it to be. But one night, Marian answers a knock on the door ... only to find Kirby Rose, an 18-year-old girl with a key to a past that Marian thought she had sealed off forever. From the moment Kirby appears on her doorstep, Marian’s perfectly constructed world - and her very identity - will be shaken to its core, resurrecting ghosts and memories of a passionate young love affair that threaten everything that has come to define her.
For the precocious and determined Kirby, the encounter will spur a process of discovery that ushers her across the threshold of adulthood, forcing her to re-evaluate her family and future in a wise and bittersweet light. As the two women embark on a journey to find the one thing missing in their lives, each will come to recognize that where we belong is often where we least expect to find ourselves - a place that we may have willed ourselves to forget, but that the heart remembers forever.

good book and reader
This is rather a "female book" I think. Or even a good scenario for melodrama, which is again often seen as a female kind of movie. This is just a watchout that I can imagine that some men might not appreciate this book. This would be a good movie though, not a shallow one. This might sound too sweet, but this is not a chick lit kind of a roman. This is a moving book about the mistakes we make in life and that not everything is that obvious. I was not very fond of some main characters, but I liked the ending. Yes, the moves in the plot are sometimes predictable like in hollywood movies, especially when approaching the end of the book, but this is the first book I finished in just 3 days, while most audible books never pass their first chapter. I also liked the reader, her very soft voice, each word perfectly clear. I recommend this book if you need some mood lift :) I will definitely check other books by Emily Griffin to round my opinion of her.
