A long-buried secret. An unexpected encounter. A quest for answers.
Celeste Tatem, a special-education teacher at The Brighton Center in
Schreiber, Indiana, couldn't be more in love with her husband, Joe. But
the memory of one day in the past haunts her, threatening their
relationship. When Joe dies in a factory explosion, she sinks into
depression. It will take the arrival of a new student, Lily, and her
delightful honesty, laughter, and joy at life's little things to awaken
Celeste to hope.
When Don, an old flame from college, reenters Celeste's
world, the flickers of love stir once again, and startling questions
arise. Questions that threaten to rip the veneer off of her carefully
guarded secret. Then the most unexpected thing of all happens.... A
story of love and forgiveness in the most unexpected places.
