“Set against the coast of Provincetown, Patry Francis’s fierce, ravishing epic cuts deep to the bone about how love binds us together and breaks us apart, and how the past’s thumbprint rests on the present. Tender, violent, and alive, it’s also unforgettable.”—Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author
“This beautifully wrought novel is a sometimes wrenching but ultimately uplifting story of murder and betrayal in the face of faith, family in its truest sense, and—most of all—love.” Booklist, Starred Review
A passionate and page-turning saga with an unsolved murder that consumes three lives over several decades in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Told through these three voices The Orphans of Race Point is a novel of suspense, betrayal, and the different ways we find transcendence and meaning in our lives. But most of all, it is a gorgeous and unforgettable love story.
