Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr brings together a poignant novel with a rich tapestry of characters. A moving story that will leave the reader laughing and crying, as two friends confront their pasts and move towards their futures.In the aftermath of her financier husband's suicide, Emma Shay Compton's dream life is shattered. Richard Compton stole his clients' life savings to fund a lavish life in New York City and, although she was never involved in the business, Emma bears the burden of her husband's crimes. She is left with nothing. Only one friend stands by her, a friend she's known since high school, who encourages her to come home to Sonoma County. But starting over isn't easy, and Sonoma is full of unhappy memories, too. And people she'd rather not face, especially Riley Kerrigan. Riley and Emma were like sisters--until Riley betrayed Emma, ending their friendship. Emma left town, planning to never look back. Now, trying to stand on her own two feet, Emma can't escape her husband's reputation and is forced to turn to the last person she thought she'd ever ask for help--her former best friend. It's an uneasy reunion as both women face the mistakes they've made over the years. Only if they find a way to forgive each other--and themselves--can each of them find the life she wants.

About Robyn Carr

Als Robyn Carr mit Ende Zwanzig ihrem Ehemann zu seinen Einsätzen als Air Force Helikopterpilot folgte, konnte sie ihren eigentlichen Beruf als Krankenschwester nicht mehr ausüben. So begann sie erst zu lesen, und dann selber zu schreiben. Inzwischen sind von der erfolgreichen Bestsellerautorin und Mutter von zwei Kindern zahlreiche Romances erschienen.
