Sometimes the only way to escape your past… is go back to where it all began.
Haunted by memories of her childhood, Maddie dreaded going home to bury the woman who gave her more love than her own parents. Every moment spent in her tiny hometown will bring images of her murdered twin, though these painful reminders become the least of her worries…
Disturbed by visits from her dead sister, Maddie reluctantly agrees to solve the mystery and track down the killer. Digging into her past releases long-suppressed memories, and she begins to doubt everything she once believed. And everyone she thought she could trust.
Especially her high school crush. After finding comfort in his arms, Maddie is shocked to find out he knows more about her early years than she can remember. Torn between forgiving his betrayal or ending their budding romance, she struggles to come to grips with her family’s dark secrets. As she learns to accept the compassion of those who love her, will the horrifying discovery of who killed her sister heal old wounds—or scar her forever?
The Art of Going Home follows a young woman on her personal journey of self-discovery. It is a poignant testament to the real meaning of family and the enduring strength of a sister’s bond.
