Somebody's Crying

by Maureen McCarthy
 

When Alice looks up and sees Tom staring at her, everything closes down around them and becomes very still. No one is breathing. No one else is in the room. Tom feels as if he can see right into the soul of Alice Wishart. It lies open before him, like a wide, long pane of glittering glass. So delicate and beautiful and . . . ready to break.

Overview

When Alice looks up and sees Tom staring at her, everything closes down around them and becomes very still. No one is breathing. No one else is in the room. Tom feels as if he can see right into the soul of Alice Wishart. It lies open before him, like a wide, long pane of glittering glass. So delicate and beautiful and . . . ready to break.

Three years have passed since the murder of Alice's mother, but still the killer is unknown. Alice, her cousin Jonty, and his friend Tom are drawn together by the mystery, but what is each of them hiding? Will their secrets bind them tighter or tear everything apart? Maureen McCarthy's intensely real characters will draw readers deep into a world of suspicion, betrayal, desire, and redemption.
