The Color of HopeBook - 2000
Ruth Connelly used to think she had the perfect life - an attractive husband, two children, a partnership in a Boston law firm, and a summer house where generations of her family have reveled in the elemental beauty of the Maine coast. But without her even realizing it, everything has started disintegrating. This summer, there is no escape from the tensions that have surfaced between her, her husband, Paul, and their beautiful, troubled sixteen-year-old daughter, Josie - or from the tragedy that overwhelms them when a long-promised sailing trip turns their son's birthday treat into a nightmare. Trapped in a spiral of guilt and denial, Ruth knows only the darkness of grief until she finds the courage to return to Maine and confront her loss. There, she finally learns to understand why we sometimes inflict the greatest pain on those we love the most.
