A missing young woman. A grieving mother. An investigative journalist determined to find answers.
From the bestselling author of Sweet Tea Tuesdays and Only One Life comes a suspenseful story of three women who, in search of freedom from the lies that bind them, experience personal growth, discovery, and forgiveness.
On a snowy morning in December of 2009, Reese Carpenter disappeared from the scene of a single-car accident that claimed her father’s life. First responders to the accident saw no evidence of her, and she’s been neither seen nor heard from since.
A decade later, Reese’s mother, Eva, who holds out hope that Reese is still alive, confides in her new across-the-street neighbor, Maggie, about her missing daughter. When her husband’s controlling behavior turns abusive, Maggie, an investigative journalist, uses the search for Reese as an opportunity to get out of town.
In this captivating novel, Maggie takes readers on a roller-coaster ride of emotion as she travels from Virginia to a college campus in Ohio to Washington DC, unraveling the secrets of the dysfunctional family that drove a young woman to a desperate act of survival.
