A family love story with bonds that break
Missy stumbles upon evidence in her father’s office that she’s adopted, yet Jack swears to whiskey in hand that he doesn’t know anything about her real mom. An aching void stirs in Missy’s heart by the possibility of having a mother figure. Despite it all, her father is clear that he won’t help her find her real mom. Maybe he can, but won’t?
Only one person is willing to help: Missy’s neighbor, Cole, a gorgeous and talented Broadway star. A chance meeting on their opposing fire escapes quickly turns into something more intense than Missy’s ever known. Together they attempt to unravel the truth, try to navigate the meaning of the secrets exposed, and what’s at stake for the future of her family.
American Honey weaves together a journey in two timelines about coming-of-age, leaving your past behind, and then recapturing it.
Sandy Jo’s childhood best friend calls and begs her to return to their favorite childhood ranch in Texas, to confront their friend’s mysterious disappearance all those years ago. If Sandy Jo is ever going to put back the pieces of her life, she must learn the truth about what happened that summer at the ranch.
