Jenna Rudolph, 26 years old, leaves behind a devoted husband, an adorable young son and a stunning estate. But Fairlie knows she should have seen this coming.
Yet Fairlie doesn’t know what Jenna’s husband Ark is hiding, nor does she know what Jenna’s mother Evelyn did to drive mother and daughter apart all those years ago.
Until Fairlie opens her mail and finds a letter. In Jenna’s handwriting. Along with a key.
Driven to search for answers, Fairlie uncovers a horrifying past, a desperate mother, and a devastating secret kept by those she loves the most.
