Right or wrong, a series of fragile relationships collides through chance, coincidence, or fate.
Twelve years ago, Kirk made an innocent but terrible mistake. As he faces down another night of tormented dreams, he struggles to shake the scars he still bears. After sixty years as man and wife, Ira and Betsy’s love is as vibrant as it was the day their eyes made contact across a dusty country parking lot. Now, disease and willful destruction tear away at everything they’ve built together.
Just sixteen, Megan is at war with the world—and especially her mother, who flounders in a failing campaign to keep her daughter from making the same mistakes she did at that age. Robin, a career-driven woman with an unwavering, take-no-prisoners attitude—despite the ultimate sacrifice she made as a woman—finds her husband Rick, who has opted to coast (and flirt) through his own career, frustrating at best.
Wes and Trish were once high school sweethearts and now have a teenager of their own. They cherish their daughter, but that’s not enough to keep them from growing apart. And now, the fate of their family hangs on the success of one big score. By eighteen, Jo-Ann was alone and pregnant. Twelve years later, she’s about to discover the reward for a good deed doesn’t come without loss.
This novel reveals the intersection of the lives of a group of very different people, illuminating the shocking ramifications of life, love, and loss in a crazy, mixed-up world.
