Alicia Carlyle and her children, Nathan and Darcie, are still reeling from the sudden, tragic death of husband and father Craig six months earlier. Alicia is also suffering from the fallout after she discovered Craig had been having an affair with her sister-in-law, Sabrina. Hoping to put the past behind her, Alicia moves her family to her childhood home in, unfortunately, the same village in which Sabrina resides. Alicia believes she can at least be civil to Sabrina or try to avoid her and, hopefully, heal her relationship with her brother, Robert. Then suddenly, Annabelle, Sabrinas 15-year-old daughter, accuses 17-year-old Nathan of an awful crime he didnt commit. Nathan and Alicia maintain his innocence, but Annabelles accusation drops a bomb among the families that threatens to tear apart the fragile reconciliation that Alicia had forged with Sabrina and Robert. The prolific Lewis latest dramatic, emotional novel is for fans of Jodi Picoult and Penny Vincenzi. --Hilary Hatton
