Thirty-three-year-old Edy has been living in a psychiatric institution for the past twenty years. When she receives a postcard from her childhood friend Isabella, it triggers fragmented memories of their one summer together in Seabury, Nova Scotia -- the summer that changed everything.

A hyper-sensitive, highly intelligent, extremely introverted child, Edy is taken by her father, Jonathan, to his hometown. For decades Jonathan has avoided Seabury, a town infused with memories of his teenage sister's tragic death -- a death he refuses to discuss. But he is convinced by his childhood friend Richard, a powerful and charismatic politician, to come home and to bring his daughter with him. Edy is befriended by Richard's daughter, the beautiful and mesmerizing Isabella. As Edy and Isabella's friendship deepens over the course of the summer, the town's dark secrets begin to emerge, leaving no one untouched.

In Sisters of Solitude, Christy Ann Conlin has written a riveting, lyrical novel about the innocence of childhood friendship, the vulnerability and resilience of girls and women, buried family secrets, and the dark and disturbing undercurrents of a small town.
