Emily Elizabeth Davis has been told her entire life that her destiny is to become a poet, just like her famous namesake, Emily Dickinson. But shortly after discovering that it contains an important family secret, she loses the special volume of Emily Dickinson poetry that was given to her at birth. As Emily and her friends search for the lost book in used bookstores all across town, Emily’s understanding of destiny begins to unravel and then rewrite itself in a marvelous new way.
In her third novel, Kathryn Fitzmaurice again weaves a richly textured and delightful story about unexpected connections, about the stories that shape our lives, and about the most perfect kinds of happy endings, those that happen just on time.
