Thank you to Recorded Books Media and Netgalley for an ALC of this book.

When Avery moves back to her mother's hometown to help take care of her sick grandmother, she learns there are secrets within her family that tear everyone apart and goes on a journey to discover her family history.

This book was so good. I seriously bawled during it because I got so emotionally invested in the characters and the story hurt so much. It sincerely tugs at the heartstrings. Avery's relationship with her estranged grandmother is so dang good! It's realistic but also sweet but also pretty curt at the same time. I really love it. I loved learning Avery's family history with her and watching her fall in love while learning about herself. I LOVED the diner scenes! My favorite.
