Willa Drake has had three opportunities to start her life over: in 1967, as a schoolgirl whose mother has suddenly disappeared; in 1977, when considering a marriage proposal; and in 1997, as a young widow trying to hold her family together. So she is surprised when in 2017 she is given one last chance to change everything, after receiving a startling phone call from a stranger. Without fully understanding why, Willa flies across the country to Baltimore to help a young woman she's never met, and in this novel by the author of the Man Booker Prize nominee A Spool of Blue Thread, she finds solace and fulfillment in unexpected places.
