One woman who has lost everything – another with everything to lose. When a chilling discovery sets their lives on a collision course, will the secrets they keep save the ones they love – or destroy everything they care about?
Sophie Miller had it all. A loving husband and adorable six-year-old son. They were a perfect family. Until a drunk driver lost control and James and Josh were killed on their way to a soccer game. Five years later, and a mother without a child, she remains a shadow of herself, barely leaving the house and relying on anti-anxiety pills just to get through the day. Working from home as a book editor is safe – or so she thinks, until a manuscript comes across her desk that threatens to turn her world upside down.
Because Sophie has a secret. A child that many years ago she helped to conceive.
The story triggers in her a sudden longing to know. Would the child share Josh’s chestnut hair? The same gold and brown flecks of his eyes. She wouldn’t interfere. She would watch from a distance. Just to know. Could she see the features of her little boy reflected one last time?
It wouldn’t hurt just to look. Would it?
