Edith Lutz doesn't want to be found. She's left behind a comfortable home in a flurry of hastily packed bags, fleeing for an anonymous life in the city. With a new look, new name and new job as live-in housekeeper to wealthy publisher Adam, she's hoping to outwit her past and build herself a new life. Again.

A breath of fresh air in newly-divorced Adam's empty home, Edith soon becomes more than just the woman who does the dishes. Over long summer nights, Edith finds herself experiencing love for the first time, while Adam knows nothing of the real woman he's falling for.

Haunted by an impossible choice she faced as a teenager and the devastating repercussions that ended her closest friendship, Edith's been running ever since. She can never be quite sure whether her past is behind her. In fact, she's pretty sure it's not.
