At once heartbreaking and uplifting, this is a story of love - love lost, love wished for, love misunderstood.
In one unforgettable moment, four lives are changed forever. As one woman runs from her past, another tries to escape her future; a young boy holds close a terrible secret; and a father does everything he can to protect him.
Two cars collide on a foggy highway, killing one of the drivers. The survivor, Isabelle, is left to pick up the pieces, not only of her own life but of the lives of the devastated husband and fragile son that the other woman, April, has left behind. Together, they try to solve the mystery of where April was running to, and why. As these three lives intersect, the book asks, how well do we really know those we love - and how do we forgive the unforgivable?
