An indie musician reeling from tragedy reconnects with her estranged father on a week-long cruise in this "pitch-perfect story about the ways we recover love in the strangest places" (Rebecca Serle).

Greta James’s rise to indie stardom was hard-won. Before she played to sold out venues, she spent her girlhood practicing guitar in the family garage. Her first fan was her mother, Helen, who always encouraged Greta to follow her heart. But her father, Conrad, was less supportive; he saw only a precarious road ahead for his daughter, and pushed her to make more practical choices.
A week after her mother’s sudden death, and just before the launch of her high-stakes sophomore album, Greta completely falls apart on stage. The footage quickly goes viral, and she stops playing, her career suddenly in the exact kind of jeopardy her father always predicted. Months later, Greta—still heartbroken and humiliated and trying to find a way back to her music—reluctantly agrees to accompany Conrad on the week-long Alaskan cruise her parents had booked to celebrate their fortieth anniversary.
It could be their last chance to heal old wounds and forge ahead in the wake of loss. But the trip will also prove to be a voyage of discovery for them both, as well as for Ben Wilder, a historian also struggling with a major upheaval in his life. In the end, Greta must face the biggest challenge of all: can she listen to the song within her while also making peace with those who love her?
