Molly Arnette is good at keeping secrets and not just because, as an attorney, it is a job requirement. She has been keeping secrets for most of her life. And now that she and her husband, Aidan, have decided to adopt a baby, Molly fears that the secrets she has kept from him about her childhood in North Carolina, her relationships with her family members, and the circumstances surrounding her father’s death will be revealed, thereby destroying her hope of becoming a mother, as well as her marriage.
Molly left North Carolina twenty years ago. Devastated, feeling betrayed by those she loved, and determined to escape her pain, she settled in San Diego. She also manufactured a family history that bore no resemblance to the truth. But now, contemplating adoption, she wants peace, resolution, and to create a healthy, loving family with Aidan. But will that be possible when Molly discovers that what she has always believed to be true might not be, after all.
