Can you ever really escape your family’s past?


It’s the question at the heart of Unbecoming Emma, an enchanting new novel about deeply buried secrets and the unbreakable bonds between mothers, daughters, and the friends who become family.

In the charmingly odd small town of Calypso Springs, Emma Rosen’s once-quiet life becomes a whirlwind of magical chaos after her father’s death. Curious letters and bouquets materialize from nowhere, but most baffling, her father has become their backyard willow tree.

When Cassie McCormack, the insufferable mother-tornado Emma never knew, unexpectedly arrives in town very much alive, and harboring an agenda, it’s not a heartfelt reunion.

Emma shuts her out, but she doesn’t stay out for long. Cassie and Bob, Emma’s beloved dog, both fall ill with a mysterious sickness and Emma discovers the unexpected connection between them that’s brought pain to the McCormack women for generations. 

Desperate for answers about how to save them, Emma unravels the mystery of her past, one lie at a time, and suddenly questions everything she thought she knew about her family and herself.

With their hourglass running out of sand, they learn the key to their survival lies locked in an enchanted box, its secrets fiercely guarded. Can mother and daughter forgive the sins of the past and find a way to open it before it’s too late?

Sure to resonate with fans of Alice Hoffman and Sarah Addison Allen, Unbecoming Emma is a captivating story infused with humor and heart about second chances and the magical power of forgiveness.
