Library Journal Review

Mallory Aldiss has not been back to her hometown of Bay Bluff, RI, for years; the memories are too painful. But when her childhood friend Jack, who is her dad's neighbor, calls to tell her that her father threatened him with a gun, she and her 13-year-old daughter Joy decide to visit Bay Bluff for a week. Twenty years earlier, Jack's mother disappeared while riding with Mallory's father in his boat. Now that her father has dementia, it is imperative to find out what really happened before it is too late. Was it murder, suicide, or an accident? As Mallory and her sisters sort through their good and bad memories while dealing with present-day challenges, secrets are gradually revealed, and Mallory reconnects with a former love. VERDICT Delinsky (Before and Again) presents a powerful story about the importance of love, family, and the acceptance of life's changes. Joy is a little too good to be true but adds a lot of motivation to Mallory's actions. This page-turner will be in demand by Delinsky's many fans.
