"There are so many things I'd love to tell you girls, but, well--I just don't know..."
Alma Johansson confides this to her grown daughters, Louisa and Michelle, shortly before her death, leaving them puzzled. Their mother's life was an open book, so what could she possibly have kept from them?
But when her will is read, revealing a life-altering secret, her words take on new meaning. They also bring back decades-old memories of a deadly fire on Indigo Hill--a fire that killed five of their friends.
For Louisa in particular, the scars from that fateful night are still visible. Now, with their mother's hidden past out in the open, both Louisa and Michelle must confront their own painful secrets to have a chance at a meaningful future.
Indigo Hill is a heart-wrenching, bittersweet novel about guilt, love, family, and memory--a story of facing the endings in a lifetime and embracing new beginnings.
