In case you missed it, here again is a summary of the novel:
Emma Johnson returned home from a family vacation fifteen years ago to find that her childhood best friend, Romaine Enson-Morton, and her family had disappeared. Prompted by the recent engagement of a friend and friction in her own relationship, she searches for clues as to why on a weekend trip home, needing to come to terms with the fact that they left her without so much as a “goodbye.” The Enson-Mortons—enigmatic and paradoxical nomads who named their children after varieties of lettuce—had appeared two years earlier as suddenly as they disappeared, welcoming a seven-year-old Emma into their home, where games of hide and seek could go on for days, teatime became the most cherished ritual, and bad manners had no place. In her search, Emma shines light on the murky events of her childhood and realizes that the past is not always as idyllic as remembered.
See you tomorrow!
