In her powerful new novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels weaves a story of betrayal, courage, and starting over...

From her silver Mercedes to her designer kitchen, Molly's life is gleaming and beautiful--at least on the surface. Married to Tanner, a top cosmetic dentist, she has a wonderful daughter finishing high school and twin stepsons from Tanner's first marriage. No one in her exclusive neighborhood in Goldenhills, Massachusetts, knows what living with the demanding Tanner is really like. They know even less about the life she left behind in Florida almost two decades ago.

Back then, Molly was Maddy Carmichael, living with her twin brother and neglectful mother in a run-down trailer park amid the orange groves of Florida. After the terrible events of her high school prom night--and the act of vengeance that followed--she fled north and reinvented herself. But the veneer of Molly's polished existence is finally cracking.

As secrets old and new are revealed, Molly must face painful truths and the choices she made in their wake--and find the strength to become the woman she once hoped to be.

    February 29, 2016
    After 21 years, brutal injustice gets its due in this somewhat roughly written story of secrets, revenge, and personal redemption from bestseller Michaels. Maddy Carmichael is a poor but honest and hardworking Florida high school senior. Her no-account brother sets her up to be raped on prom night. After a traumatized Maddy believes she’s killed three of her attackers in a hit-and-run accident afterward, she runs as far as she can and ends up in Boston. But changing her name and marrying Tanner McCann, a wealthy suburban dentist, can’t take away the awful memory of that night—especially when Tanner turns out to be an abuser who raises his sons to disrespect her too. Two decades after the accident, a mysterious phone call frightens her into thinking her secret is out, and Maddy runs again. But this time, she’s determined to get some justice. Michaels’s dedication to advocating for abused women is heartfelt, but the story suffers from repetitive writing, plot holes, and stereotypical characters. Michaels’s many fans, however, are likely to forgive those problems for this tale of strong emotions and courage.
