What if you did something so devastating, you regretted it for the rest of your life?

Nineteen-year-old Maggie Lockwood spent a year in prison for her part in a fire that cost three lives. The scars carried by the surviving victims - inside and out - are still raw and Maggie's release from jail does nothing to free her from the guilt.

Returning home, Maggie hides herself away, too afraid to see Keith, the boy she grew up with, played with as a child - and recently learnt is her half-brother.

Keith nearly lost his life in the fire and the emotional and physical wounds he carries have changed him forever. With childhood innocence gone, Maggie and Keith must learn to come to terms with their new lives, but trying to move forward will have deadly consequences...

Our customer reviews

An excellent sequal to "Before the Storm". I was a little put off by the ending of the last book, but this one makes up for it. An incident at the beginning made it difficult to not want to skip ahead and find out the answers, hence why i ended up finishing the book in 2 days! This book goes back in time a lot, and you end up hearing about the same incident but by each character's perspective. I enjoyed this; however some readers might find this a bit boring. But I think the character twists should keep one entertained!show more
