When their tragic past begins to resurface, can he help her remember the things she can’t?

After her mother’s death twelve years ago, Lynette Carlisle watched her close-knit family unravel. One by one, her four older siblings left their Nantucket home and never returned. All seem to blame their father for their mother’s death, but nobody will talk about that tragic day. And Lynette’s memory only speaks through nightmares.

Then Nicholas Cooper returns to Nantucket, bringing the past with him. Once Lynette’s adolescent crush, Nick knows more about her mother’s death than he lets on. The truth could tear apart his own family¾and destroy his fragile friendship with Lynette, the woman he no longer thinks of as a kid sister.

As their father’s failing health and financial concerns bring the Carlisle siblings home, secrets surface that will either restore their shattered relationships or separate the siblings forever. But pulling up anchor on the past propels them into the perfect storm, powerful enough to make them question their faith, their willingness to forgive, and the very truth of all the things they thought they knew.

Favorite season? 
Even though I live on an island, I have to say my favorite season is Fall. We lived seven years in Canada, and I absolutely love that feeling when the weather begins to change and the air holds a nip, first fires, apple picking, and the changing leaves. It also ushers in the start of the holiday season, which I love. :-)

Who is your favorite secondary character?
In The Things We Knew, I have to pick Gray Carlisle. He’s so broken, he’s really messed up his life, yet there’s just something loveable about him, and you want to see him redeemed somehow. Of course you’ll have to read the book to find out what happens!

What’s your favorite book? 
Gone With The Wind. I read the entire thing when I was thirteen, sitting in a very old and drafty library of my boarding school in the south of England. It was my first adventure into romance, and I think I caught the bug. :-) They showed the movie that term as well, and I was completely entranced. It’s one of my favorites and I watch it at least once a year!

Award-winning author Catherine West writes stories of hope and healing from her island home in Bermuda. When she’s not at the computer working on her next story, you can find her taking her Border Collie for long walks or reading books by her favorite authors. She and her husband have two grown children. Catherine’s novel, Bridge of Faith, won the 2015 Grace Award. Her latest novel, The Things We Knew, releases July 12th, 2016, through Harper Collins Christian Publishing.
