From the internationally bestselling author of The Marriage Lie comes a riveting exploration of grief and guilt in the wake of one family’s shocking loss.
When former DC journalist Abigail Wolff attempts to rehabilitate her career, she finds herself at the heart of a shocking conspiracy involving the death of a soldier in Afghanistan. This loss has unspeakable emotional consequences for the family and as news of what happened comes to light, Abigail will stop at nothing to write the story.
As she stumbles upon more and more evidence in the case, it seems there are fewer and fewer people she can trust…including her own father, a retired army general. Stunned by the revelations, she is equally surprised to find herself falling for the slain soldier’s brother, Gabe, a bitter man struggling to hold his family together. Her investigation eventually leads her to an impossible choice, one of unrelenting sacrifice to protect those she loves.
Beyond the buried truths and betrayals, questions of family loyalty and redemption, Abigail’s search is, most of all, a desperate grasp to carry on—and seek hope in the impossible. In this emotionally gripping story, Kimberly Belle has penned an unforgettable narrative and a true testament to the meaning of trust.
