Ruth Connelly used to think she had the perfect life--two beautiful children, a caring, attractive husband, and a successful and illustrious career. But without her even realizing it, everything has started disintegrating. She and Paul, passionately inseparable at the beginning of their marriage, have started drifting apart, and her older child Josie, once so sweet and energetic, is now sullen and bitter, lashing out at her parents at the slightest provocation. When a family vacation meant to heal some emotional wounds instead ends in tragedy, Ruth and Paul find themselves unable to cope with each other or their surviving son Will. But time--and love--still have a chance to repair their grief. A powerful and moving novel from a gifted new author.
