Recca Meister Fitzpatrick—wife, mother, grandmother, and pillar of the community—is the dutiful steward of her family’s iconic summer tradition … until she discover her recently deceased husband squandered their nest egg.

As she struggles to accept what is likely her last season in Long Harbor, Becca is inspired by her granddaughter’s boldness in the face of impending single-motherhood, and summons the courage to reveal a long-buried secret: the existence of a daughter she gave up fifty years earlier.

Eden is the heartrending account of the days leading up to the Fourth of July weekend as Becca prepares to uncover her secret and her son and brothers conspire to put the estate on the market, interwoven with the century-long history of Becca’s family—her parents’ beginnings and ascent into affluence, and her mother’s own secret struggles in the grand home her father named "Eden."
