The Delaneys are fixtures in their community. The parents, Stan and Joy, are the envy of all of their friends. They’re killers on the tennis court, and off it their chemistry is palpable. But after fifty years of marriage, they’ve finally sold their famed tennis academy and are ready to start what should be the golden years of their lives. So why are Stan and Joy so miserable?
The four Delaney children — Amy, Logan, Troy, and Brooke — were tennis stars in their own right, yet as their father will tell you, none of them had what it took to go all the way. But that’s okay, now that they’re all successful grown-ups and there is the wonderful possibility of grandchildren on the horizon.
When a stranger named Savannah knocks on Stan and Joy’s door, the children are alarmed but not completely surprised that Joy would want to take Savannah in. But when Joy disappears, leaving nothing but a cryptic text message that is sent to all four of her children, the Delaney family is shaken to their core, and Amy, Logan, Troy, and Brooke are forced to reckon with their family’s secrets.
