Growing up, Kenly Lowen's life was shaped around a widowed alcoholic father who made it clear that he never wanted her in the first place. She emerged from childhood determined to find happiness. Today, at thirty-two, Kenly has a husband and a son who mean the world to her; the kind of life she always dreamed of having.
When her closest childhood friend dies, Kenly is given an old tin box they once shared - a tin box they hid on the roof of a tree house fifteen years earlier. Inside is a secret she has kept for years. To reveal it could end her marriage and shatter her world, but can she continue to shoulder the weight of years of silence?
Kenly's is a story filled with heartbreak, tragedy, and hope. In a small town filled with hidden treasures, young Kenly discovers people who change her life. From terminally ill Tommy, who loves her, to old Max, who shows her that a fire pit is sometimes the best medicine, to edgy Lexie, who believes life should be lived, "The Tin Box will take Kenly on an unforgettable journey. The decision she finally makes will test the ties that bind people together against a wound that could tear them apart.
"The Tin Box is an achingly beautiful novel of one woman's desire to save all that she loves while honoring the past that made her into the woman she is.

Reviews

Praise for "The Tin Box" ""The Tin Box" is a very special novel by a spectacular new talent. Holly Kennedy writes with compassion and authenticity about the things that matter most."--Susan Wiggs, author of "Table for Five " ""The Tin Box" is a rare jewel."--Robyn Carr, author of" Blue Skies" "I guarantee once you dive into the first pages of this novel, you will not be able to put it down."--Linda Holeman, author of "The Linnet " ""The Tin Box" is nothing if not feel-good fiction. Good triumphs over tragedy, patterns of dark and dubious behaviour are brought into the light before being vanquished, and hope and love reign supreme, with a well-crafted climax that would raise a tear in all but the terminally hardhearted."--"Edmonton Journal" "A riveting, heartfelt tale, Kennedy's novel has a depth of emotion that is both believable and real."--"Romantic Times BookClub Magazine" (4 1/2 stars and a Top Pick) "A story of love for those who don't like love stories. As you read this tale of secrets, friendship, betrayal, forgiveness and undying love you'll find yourself finishing "The Tin Box" is one stretch."--"The Roanoke Times" "A wonderful, poignant tale of forgiveness, perseverance, and the healing power of the human spirit "The Tin Box" is a page-turner and not a book to be taken lightly, but is definitely a good read."--"Romance Reviews Today" "
