Publisher's Summary

The Whitaker family's Connecticut mansion, Muses by the Sea, has always been a haven for artists, a hotbed of creativity, extravagances, and the occasional scandal. Art patrons for generations, the Whitakers supported strangers but drained the life out of each other. Now, after being estranged for years, four generations of Whitaker women find themselves once again at the Muses. Leo, the Whitaker matriarch, lives in the rambling mansion. She plans to stay there until she joins her husband, Wes, on the knoll overlooking the cove and meadow where they first met. Jillian is a jet-setting actress, down on her luck. She thinks selling the Muses will make life easier for her mother, Leo, by moving her into assisted living. Issy, Jillian's daughter, has a successful life as a museum exhibit designer that takes her around the world. But the Muses and her grandmother are the only family she's known, and when her sister leaves her own children with Leo, Issy knows she has to step in to help. Steph is only 12 years old and desperately needs someone to fire her imagination and bring her out of her shell. What she begins to discover at the Muses could change the course of her future.
