Book Synopsis

"I loved it (even though it made me cry)."--Jojo Moyes

For fans of This Is Us comes a story of a family divided and the secret that can possibly unite them - a life-affirming novel with a twist will break your heart and an ending that will put it together again.

A secret between two sisters.

A lifetime of lies unraveling.

Can one broken family find their way back to each other?

Audrey's dream as a mother had been for her daughters, Jess and Lily, to be as close as only sisters can be. But now, as adults, they no longer speak to each other, and Audrey's two teenage granddaughters have never met. Audrey just can't help feeling like she's been dealt more than her fair share as she's watched her family come undone over the years, and she has no idea how to fix her family as she wonders if they will ever be whole again.

If only Audrey had known three decades ago that a secret could have the power to split her family in two, and yet, also keep them linked. And when hostilities threaten to spiral out of control, a devastating choice that was made so many years ago is about to be revealed, testing this family once and for all.

Once the truth is revealed, will it be enough to put her family back together again or break them apart forever?

"Utterly compelling and completely heartbreaking. I couldn't put it down."
-- Ruth Hogan

"Totally engrossing, achingly sad and so perceptive about the corrosive legacy of family secrets."--Kate Eberlen, author of Miss You

The narrative is fractured through time and viewpoint into large, weighty chunks and small, sharp shards, and she joins these together seamlessly into a tense tale that is much stronger for its delivery. ... A gripping story about love and loss.”--Kirkus Reviews
