General Note
Includes reading group discussion guide.
Katie’s divorce was, in a word, humiliating. So when her friend Bess offers a fresh start-a resident caretaking job at a nature preserve-Katie accepts. No matter that she’s not exactly a “nature person.” How hard can it be? But from day one, something feels off. Katie’s new farmhouse looks as if the last caretaker barely moved out at all. When a frantic, terrified woman arrives late at night, expecting a safe place to hide, it’s clear caretaking involves way more than Katie bargained for. Suddenly, Katie is no longer sure who she can trust: the brooding groundskeeper, the daily regulars-hikers, dog walkers, bird-watchers, photographers-even Bess. As Katie digs deeper for clues in what the last caretaker left behind, she must discover courage she never knew she had-and decide how much she’ll risk to do the right thing.
