ABOUT
THE BOOK

The four Padavano girls bring loving chaos to their neighbourhood. William Waters grew up in a house silenced by tragedy. So, when he meets Julia Padavano, it’s as if the world has lit up around him.

With Julia comes her family: Sylvie, the dreamer; Cecelia, the artist; and Emeline patiently taking care of them all. But when darkness from William’s past begins to block the light of his future, a catastrophic rift leaves the family inhabiting two sides of a fault line.

Can they find their way back to each other? Can love make a broken family whole?
