'Fans of Jodi Picoult will love this.' Daily Express

'Warm, rich, textured and impossible to put down.' Nora Roberts

'A compelling, emotional read about love, loss, and becoming someone new.' Sadie Pearse, author of This Child of Ours

Mackenzie Cooper took her eyes off the road for just a moment, but the resulting collision was enough to rob her of her life as she knew it.

Forced to start again, she moved to a small town under a new name - Maggie Reid - and her only goal is to stay under the radar. She's thankful for the few friends she's made, although she can't risk telling them too much about her previous life.

But Maggie isn't the only one in this peaceful town with secrets. When a friend's teenage son is thrust into the national spotlight, Maggie is torn between protecting herself or stepping into the glare to be at their side. Will she find the courage to face the world again?
