A powerful tale of passion and betrayal and a woman’s determination to find out the truth about her past, whatever it costs.
Julia Thayne is a valued and loving wife, a successful mother and a beautiful woman. She is everything most other women strive to be. But beneath the surface is a terrible secret that is threatening to tear her perfect world apart. Her beloved father walked out one day when she was sixteen and never contacted her again.
