From Barnes & NobleMary Jeffers knows that everything Robert Van Doren touches turns to gold for him — and to dust for everyone else. Years ago, her best friend committed suicide (or so the police said) when she was dating him, and somehow, in the aftermath, 17-year-old Mary's marriage fell apart. She and Noelle, her baby, went home to her folks. Twenty-one years later, when Robert swept Noelle off her feet and into marriage, Mary was devastated. But it wasn't until Noelle asked for a divorce, and Robert snatched their five-year-old daughter, Emma, that Mary realized how bad things could become.
Mary's estranged husband, Charlie, helps Mary and Noelle to uncover the truth buried under years of deception — the bitter secrets and cruel betrayals. What they discover about Robert is shattering. Yet, amid that darkness are the first glimmers of hope — hope that Noelle and Emma will be reunited, that Noelle will find love again, even hope that Mary and Charlie might rediscover the love that once bound them so tightly together. Bestselling author Eileen Goudge has crafted a haunting and convincing tale of love and suspense.
