The echoes / Jess Montgomery.

Montgomery, Jess, (author.).


"As July 4, 1928 approaches, Sheriff Lily Ross and her family look forward to the opening of an amusement park in a nearby town, created by Chalmer Fitzpatrick--a veteran and lumber mill owner. When Lily is alerted to the possible drowning of a young girl, she goes to investigate and discovers schisms going back several generations, in an ongoing dispute over the land on which Fitzpatrick has built the park. Lily's family life is soon rattled, too, with the revelation that before he died, her brother had a daughter, Esmé, with a woman in France, and arrangements have been made for Esmé to emigrate to the United States, to live with them. But Esmé never makes it to Kinship, and soon Lily discovers that she has been kidnapped. Not only that, but a young woman is indeed found murdered in the fishing pond on Fitzpatrick's property, at the same time that a baby is left on his doorstep. As the two crimes interweave, Lily must confront the question of what makes family: can we trust those we love? And what do we share, and what do we keep secret?"--Jacket flap.
