My whole body aches. I trawl memories of her, now so precious... my darling child. I can't lose her...
When Tessa arrives at the little house by the lake with her two children, it is an escape. The rental house may be a bit small - but it's theirs for the summer. A place to hide...
However, their isolation is disrupted by the family from the big house next door. Three children and their glamorous mother Rebecca - who seems determined to invite Tessa into their lives.
Rebecca, however, is harbouring a dark secret. And when it becomes too much for her to bear, Tessa seems to be the only person she can turn to.
But as powerful bonds form between the two families, choices will be made that can never be undone. And as the summer comes to an end, nothing can keep everyone safe. And one family will pay the ultimate price...
A gripping, powerful emotional page turner with a heartbreaking twist, for fans of Jodi Picoult, Emily Bleeker and Diane Chamberlain.

About the Author
Kate Hewitt is a USA Today bestselling author of romance novels and stories. She discovered her first Mills & Boon British romance novels on a trip to England when she was thirteen and she has continued to read them ever since. She wrote her first story at the age of five, simply because her older brother had written one and she thought she could do it, too. That story was one sentence long--fortunately, they've become a bit more detailed as she's grown older. After living in England for six years, she now resides in Connecticut with her husband, an Anglican minister, and her three young children.
