婚禮那天,抵達教堂的卻是未婚夫的棺木。
當生命已經註定重來,許多線索卻透露:未婚夫可能沒有死……

二十多歲的年輕副主廚艾咪擁有一份完美人生的完美配方:嫁給青梅竹馬的男友詹姆士,建立家庭,繼續經營父母親的餐廳。然而當詹姆士去墨西哥出差,在划船意外中失蹤時,溫馨的未來畫面也隨之湮沒於茫茫大海。數週後,詹姆士的屍體被沖回海岸。在預定舉行婚禮那天,艾咪參加了詹姆士的葬禮。

所有人都在艾咪身旁陪伴支持,包括詹姆士的家人。但是葬禮那天,一位名叫蕾西,自稱靈媒的陌生女子,信誓旦旦聲稱詹姆士沒死。艾咪很想相信,但是棺木裡的屍體又怎麼說呢?與此同時,艾咪發現家裡八箱詹姆士的畫作竟不見蹤影。父母親決定出售餐廳,告訴艾咪,她也可以有自己的人生。一時間,艾咪墜入無以繼的憂鬱深淵,最後租下一間小小的老咖啡店經營,慢慢站穩腳步,開始新的生活,也遇見互有好感的攝影師伊恩。

二年後,艾咪收到一個不可思議的包裹,內含一幅詹姆士的失蹤畫作,以及蕾西的信,信上說詹姆士在墨西哥安全地生活。伊恩決定與艾咪前往墨西哥一探究竟,這一趟,也攸關兩人始終懸而未決的未來。一連串關於他們的過去與詹姆士家人的秘密接連浮現,真相,可能讓艾咪自由,或者再度心碎,永遠一蹶不振……

《Everything We Keep》探索失落的錐心之痛,再度遇見愛時的怦然狂喜,發現摯愛之人隱藏真相時的衝擊——為了保護所愛,能做出多大犧牲?意想不到的轉折,緊緊牽動讀者的心。
