Once upon a time Kate’s life was full of love and smiles and laughter. A time where she dared to dream and hope. But then her perfect family unit is shattered in the most unthinkable way. And now Kate is silently and steadily falling apart.
When she meets Martha, Kate recognizes a kindred spirit. Martha is searching for a lost love; tragedy has touched her life too. Why are they so inexplicably drawn to one another? And why are they both keeping secrets about their pasts? As Kate and Martha are forced to face the painful memories they’d each locked away, can they save each other and learn to live again? A beautifully written story full of emotion, hope and the redeeming power of love and friendship.
Perfect for fans of Diane Chamberlain, Amanda Prowse and Rowan Coleman.'
