It’s been eighteen years since Abigail was born with a hole in her heart. Five years since she collapsed on the soccer field. Five years since she found out she was adopted.
Abby has spent five years wondering about the family she never knew and waiting for her eighteenth birthday. When Abby shows up on the doorstep of Chris and Claire Knight, her birth parents are overjoyed to see the little girl they lost eighteen years ago. Abby finally learns the truth about the sacrifices her birth parents made for her and is astonished to find she is regarded as “the girl who got away.”
One summer is all they have to make up for the years they lost. But a summer of love soon turns into a summer of heartache for Abby. Until, once again, someone makes the ultimate sacrifice for the girl who got away.
