9780758214058: One Week In December

In this compelling, heartfelt novel from the bestselling author of Tuscan Holiday and The Friends We Keep, a family reunited for the holidays explores the price of secrets, the power of regret, and the choices that can change everything. . .

The Rowans' rambling Maine farmhouse is just big enough to contain the family members gathered there in the week before Christmas. Becca Rowan has driven north from Boston with one thought in mind--reclaiming the daughter she gave up when she was a frightened teenager. Raised by Becca's older brother and his wife, Rain Rowan, now sixteen, has no idea she was adopted. And though Becca agreed not to reveal the truth until Rain turned twenty-one, lately that promise, along with all her career success, counts for little in the face of her loneliness and longing.

But while Becca anticipates shock at her announcement, she's unprepared for the depth of her family's reactions. Her brother is angry and fearful of losing the daughter he adores; her sister Olivia, oblivious to her crumbling marriage, reveals long-buried resentments, while Becca's parents are torn between concern and guilt. And as the Rowans' neighbor, Alex, draws her deeper into an unexpected friendship, Becca begins to challenge her own preconceptions about family, about love, and about the courage needed to live with--and sometimes change--the decisions we make. . .

From the Back Cover:

The Rowans' rambling Maine farmhouse is just big enough to contain the four generations of family members, ranging in age from eight to eighty-six, gathered there the week before Christmas. Becca Rowan has driven north from Boston with only one thought -- reclaiming the daughter she gave up when she was a frightened teenager. Now thirty-two, with her career success assured, Becca's recurring fantasies are about the life she'll have with Rain.

Raised by Becca's older brother and his wife, Rain Rowan, now sixteen, has no idea she was adopted. Though she had promised not to reveal the truth until Rain turned twenty-one, Becca is finding that promise impossible to keep. She knows her family will be shocked by her announcement that she's no longer willing to wait, but she's unprepared for the depth of their reaction.
