ABOUT THE BOOK
Ten years ago, Lena Donohue experienced a wedding-day betrayal so painful that she fled the small town of Watersend, South Carolina, and reinvented herself in New York City. Though now a freelance travel writer, the one place she rarely goes is home—until she learns of her dad’s failing health.
Returning to Watersend means seeing the sister she has avoided for a decade and the brother who runs the family’s Irish pub and has borne the burden of his sisters’ rift. While Alzheimer’s slowly steals their father’s memories, the siblings rush to preserve his life in stories and in photographs. As his secret past brings Lena’s own childhood into focus, it sends her on a journey to discover the true meaning of home.

Tour Note from Patti—Facebook
"It seems fitting in a book about the meaning of home that my tour should take me to the very town—Doylestown, PA—where my father worked for his three years of seminary and where my parents were married 58 years ago this July. I lived in Ardmore and Narberth, PA, until I was 12 years old, so coming back to the Philly area for my event tomorrow is a homecoming of sorts. In fact, I’m meeting up with my childhood best friend who still works at Narberth Presbyterian where my dad was a preacher. And we are going to try and find my childhood home. And then…? I hope you will all come see me at The Doylestown Bookshop Thurs 6/14 at 6:30pm!"
