The Mothers by Britt Bennett

Nadia Turner is grief stricken by the recent suicide of her mom. She takes up with the local pastor’s son, Luke Sheppard. She hastily leaves her home town and, by extension, Luke. Returning to that town years later she has to confront all that she left behind, including her unresolved feelings towards Luke. This is a beautifully written story about love, loss, and regret.
