Sixteen-year-old Libby Winters lives in Paradise, a seaside town north of Boston that rarely lives up to its name. She and her father, Bent, a former soldier turned policeman, share the middle apartment in a triple-decker home while Bent's two sisters occupy the top floor and look after Libby when her father works nights. Shuffling back and forth between apartments has Libby wishing for nothing more than a home of her very own. Quinn Ellis is at a crossroads. When her husband, John, who served a tour in Iraq with Bent, goes missing back at home with PTSD that he refuses to address, Quinn finds herslef living in the first-floor apartment of the Winterses' house. For Libby, the new tenant downstairs is an unwelcome guest, another body filling up her already crowded house. But, soon enough, an unlikely friendship begins to blossom as Libby and Quinn start to redefine their understanding of family and home
