Every summer, Samantha Wheland joins her childhood friends, Isabel, Kendra and Mina, on a vacation somewhere exotic and fabulous -- this year it’s a beach house in Honduras. But for the first time, their clan is not complete. Mina lost her battle against cancer six months ago, and the friends she left behind are still struggling to find their way forward without her.
For Samantha, the vacation feels wrong without Mina. She’s unsure what direction her life should take and fearful that whatever decision she makes about her French boyfriend’s surprise proposal will be the wrong one. The answers aren’t in the journal Mina gave Sam before she died. Or in the messages Sam believes Mina is sending as guideposts.
Before the trip ends, it will take the bonds of existing friendships, family stories of love and loss, and a glimpse into a world far removed from her own to convince Sam to trust and follow her heart.
