When Katy's mother dies, Katy is devastated. Carol was not only her mother, but her best friend and the first person she could turn to whenever she needed it. And now, when Katy needs her most, she's gone. To make matters worse, she approaches their mother and daughter trip that they had so excitedly planned: two weeks in Positano, the place where Carol spent the summer before meeting Katy's father. She has been waiting for him for years, and now she must embark on the adventure alone.
But as soon as she sets foot on the Amalfi Coast, Katy begins to feel the spirit of her mother. Buoyed by the stunning waters, the beautiful cliffs, the charming neighbors and, of course, the delicious food, Katy feels herself slowly coming back to life. And then Carol appears… Flesh and blood, healthy, sun-tanned and only thirty years old. Katy doesn't understand what's going on, she can only focus on the fact that she has somehow, impossibly, gotten her mother back.
A novel about how we move on after loss and how the people we love never really leave us.
