Since a solo plane crash killed her husband two years ago, Annabelle Murphy has found solace in raising her two children. Just when she thinks the grief is behind her, she receives news that the wreckage of the plane has been discovered - and that her husband did not die alone. He was with another woman. Suddenly, Annabelle is forced to question everything she once held true.

Sofie Milstead knows the woman who was on that plane. A dolphin researcher who has lived a quiet life, Sofie has never let anyone get too close. But when Annabelle shows up on Sofie's doorstep full of painful questions, both women must confront their intertwining pasts... and find the courage they need to face the truth.

Listener Opinions

    " A very subtle, lyrical style of writing. I enjoyed this, was a little frustrated at the lack of answers at the half way point (but I think I was supposed to be). Lovely characters, was a little sad that the son wasn't more developed, but all in all, enjoyable. I typically like something a little more...I don't even know how to describe it--vibrant, splashy...so I was surprised I liked this as well as I did. "

    " Decent story that had potential but was killed by lame descriptions and too many subplots. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 PC | 2/6/2014

    " great characters and good plot movement...while the story is interesting enough to keep you reading, it may make you doubt things about your own life. how well do you know your spouse? "

    " I really liked the way this book started, but it quickly started to read like a sappy made for TV movie. It was very predictable, and by the time I got to the big "secret," I had already figured it out for myself. "
