About the Book
When Caroline, a gifted ornithologist who wants a life of travel and adventure, gets pregnant against her wishes, her husband, Charlie, assumes she will change her mind. She doesn’t – and as their daughter, Grace, grows up, she falls through the devasting schism that has grown between them.
