Winner of the Historical Fiction Company's "Highly Recommended" award of excellence, The Things We'll Never Have is part mystery, part psychological drama set in 1960s Italy about family, friendship, and the lies that bind us.

The brightest things in Everleigh's otherwise dull days in 1964 London are colors, fashion she's not brave enough to wear, and the idea of the enchanted life she'll inherit when she marries Gualtiero. But her dreams are crushed when her beloved mysteriously vanishes before the wedding. Everleigh travels to Italy, convinced he's returned to his hometown, but when she tracks down the man everyone knows as Gualtiero, she has never seen him before. The question is no longer where her fiancé is, but who he is.

Determined to uncover the truth, Everleigh teams up with two unlikely friends. Soon, she unlocks a shocking truth about Gualtiero that propels the three women on a collision course that will shatter everything they thought they knew about family—and themselves.

"An arresting and unpredictable tale of family." Kirkus Reviews
