Abigail Gibson is gone.
The day after Christmas, she walks out of her home in the suburbs, leaving behind a strange note on the kitchen table...and her 10-year-old son, Sam. When her sister Gillian gets the call, she can barely believe it: Abigail has always been a little, well, unreliable, but she hasn’t done anything like this in a decade - not since Sam was born.
Now, Gillian and her husband are taking care of Sam while they wait for news of Abigail. But things aren’t so great in Gillian’s home, where, after months of struggling to get pregnant, her marriage is starting to show cracks she never thought she’d see, and her husband's keeping secrets she's not sure she wants to unravel. Meanwhile as clues start to turn up about where Abigail might be, Gillian's forced to confront the two big questions that will upend her world: What secrets is her sister hiding...and is she ever coming back?
From the best-selling author of The Silent Daughter and The First Wife's Secret comes this gripping new novel about buried pasts, old secrets, and the risky choices we make for love. Perfect holiday listening for fans of Kerry Lonsdale, Liane Moriarty, and Jodi Picoult.
