Years ago, Lyra Davis fled the people she loved most, unable to reconcile the expectations of her wealthy family with the longings of her own wild heart. Now she lives quietly among a community of expatriates on the isle of Capri, slowly, carefully learning to live fully for the first time.

Pell Davis, wise beyond her sixteen years, and her younger sister Lucy still long for the mother who ran away from them when they were children. Pell thinks she knows why Lyra left. Now she will travel across an ocean to find the mother she remembers and learn the deeper truths Lyra has never been able to reveal.
