The Orphans of Race Point
by Patry Francis




Overview -

"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 of Pictures of You

Set on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, a suspenseful page-turning saga of love, murder, and the true meaning of faith from the author of the acclaimed The Liar's Diary.

Set in the close-knit Portuguese community of Provincetown, Massachusetts, The Orphans of Race Point traces the relationship between Hallie Costa and Gus Silva, who meet as children in the wake of a terrible crime that leaves Gus parentless. Their friendship evolves into an enduring and passionate love that will ask more of them than they ever imagined.

On the night of their high school prom, a terrible tragedy devastates their relationship and profoundly alters the course of their lives. And when, a decade later, Gus--now a priest--becomes entangled with a distraught woman named Ava and her daughter Mila, troubled souls who bring back vivid memories of his own damaged past, the unthinkable happens: he is charged with murder. Can Hallie save the man she's never stopped loving, by not only freeing him from prison but also--finally--the curse of his past?

Told in alternating voices, The Orphans of Race Point illuminates the transformative power of love and the myriad ways we find meaning in our lives.
