The Truth About Tara by Darlene Gardner
Jack DiMarco had followed a doctor to the island off the Chesapeake shore in hopes of having him do an arm surgery so he could play baseball again. After talking to him he was back on the mainland with the advice to find a different job in life or rehab as another had done.
Earlier he had stopped a PE school teacher on her way to work and showed her the picture from his sister Maria, a PI of what a missing 3 yo child would look like 30 years later and it fit her description completed. Tara Greer denied that it was her and that
she had always lived in town, not in another state at all. Problem is she has memories of being someplace else, being shaken to shut up... Could it be that she really is that missing person.
She was always running to her mothers help, she had fostered a Downs syndrome boy. Tara's father and sister had died in a crash in the past and the anniversary date was coming soon and probably her mother'd want to commemorate it.
Her friend Mary Dee had recently married and was always trying to hook Tara up with eligible bachelors.
Love the locale of the seashore, wild ponies and other trips around the area.
Her mother had signed them up for summer camp for 2 weeks so they'd all be together: tara, Carrie and Danny.
Tara begins to doubt things when she asks to borrow the picture albums from before they moved to town and her tells her they all got damaged. There are no infant pictures of her, just toddler ones...
As Jack is rehabbing himself with exercises his coach had given him he finds the ad in the paper for a volunteer position at Camp Daybreak. He figures it will fill in some hours of his new daily life.
Jack's not told Tara about his past and his injuries. Tara has not told Jack about her past, her injuries and life choices...
Besides Jack and Tara spending time together, Carrie has her eyes on the camp owner, Gus, who also plays in the band on Friday nights.
Tara takes matters into her own hands and does and doesn't want to see the results....
