Sylvie and Maggie are two women living on opposite coasts with children about to leave the nest for school. Both are in their forties with husbands who travel more than either would like. The looming emptiness of their respective homes has left them feeling anxious and lonely, needing their husbands to be home now more than ever. It isn’t until Eve, Sylvie’s daughter, happens to befriend Maggie’s daughter that the similarities between these two women become shockingly real. A huge secret has remained well hidden for years until now—and their lives will be blown apart as dark truths from the past come to the surface. Can these two women learn to forgive, for the sake of their children…and for themselves?

"This gripping story is ultimately one of redemption."—Library Journal
