From New York Times bestselling author Megan Hart comes an emotionally charged novel that explores the secrets and lies that can destroy a family…forever.
Home isn’t always the place you go because they have to take you in. Sometimes, home’s the place you can’t escape, no matter how far or fast you run.
Janelle Decker hasn’t been home in a long, long time. She ran away years ago, barely in front of the tragedy that rocked the small town of St. Mary’s, Pennsylvania. Only one other person knows the part Janelle played in what happened back then. One man who took the blame for himself.
Gabe Tierney stayed behind to face the terrible consequences of the accident that left one younger brother permanently disabled and the other doing whatever he can to avoid them all.
When Janelle returns with her twelve-year-old son to get her life in order and take care of her dying Nan, it should be easy for her and Gabe to rekindle their former friendship – except that Gabe can’t forgive Janelle for abandoning him, and Janelle can’t reconcile her part in what happened back then.
There is no moving forward until you stop yourself from looking back, but will Janelle and Gabe be able to face their lives ahead? Or will their secrets and the lies they told keep them prisoners of their shared past?
“A tense look at dark secrets and the redemptive power of truth.” – Kirkus Reviews
