Ellie has a long way to go to find peace after all the violence and loss. Dina loves her, but has her own wounds heal. There are still far too many things unspoken between them, and Joel's memory still lingers above it all.
Picking up right at the end of Part II and told through a mixture of journal entries/letters and narrative, this is the story of the year following Ellie's return to Jackson: the consequences she must face, the people she left behind, the difficulty of closure, and the slow road to learning that there are many ways for a life to matter. Aiming for a realistic portrayal of trauma and its collateral damage, but will eventually have a happy ending.
