The Bookshop at Water's End

Patti Callahan Henry

Two best friends, Bonny and Lainey, are at a crossroads in life. Bonny had planned to leave her job and her husband until one night when she caused the accidental death of a patient after being distracted by the surprise appearance of her lifelong crush who happens to also be Lainey's brother. To escape while the incident is investigated, Bonny takes her teenage daughter, Piper, to Watershed, South Carolina. Lainey had not been back to Watershed since her alcoholic mother disappeared from there years earlier, but she agrees to join Bonny there. The women try to find the answers to life's' questions and move on from past demons with the help of bookshop owner, Mimi.
