Anna Hollis is a forty-seven year old schoolteacher living in Sydney with a daughter in the throes of first love and aging parents. She believes she has a happy marriage and a friend she can trust with her life.

When her husband of twenty-five years leaves on Christmas morning with no explanation, her secure world collapses. His subsequent untimely death, followed by unexpected claims made on his estate, lead to complications which fuel her bitterness and grief.

Marcus King has returned to Australia from the US, leaving behind a broken marriage and the son he thought was his.

The pair meet when Marcus becomes the new Headmaster at Anna’s school and they form a fragile friendship.

Can Anna leave the past behind and make a new life for herself, and does Marcus have a part to play in her future?

About the author

After a career in education, Maggie Christensen began writing contemporary women's fiction portraying mature women facing life-changing situations. Her travels inspire her writing, be it her frequent visits to family in Oregon, USA or her home on Queensland's beautiful Sunshine Coast. Maggie writes of mature heroines coming to terms with changes in their lives and the heroes worthy of them.
From her native Glasgow, Scotland, Maggie was lured by the call 'Come and teach in the sun' to Australia, where she worked as a primary school teacher, university lecturer and in educational management. Now living with her husband of thirty years on Queensland's Sunshine Coast, she loves walking on the deserted beach in the early mornings and having coffee by the river on weekends. Her days are spent surrounded by books, either reading or writing them - her idea of heaven!
She continues her love of books as a volunteer with her local library where she selects and delivers books to the housebound. 

A member of Queensland Writer's Centre, RWA, ALLi, and a local critique group, Maggie enjoys meeting her readers at book signings and library talks.
