Change of Heart

Front Cover
Allen & Unwin, 2008 - Murderers - 447 pages
One day June Nealon was happily anticipating a lifetime of laughter and adventure with her family; the next, she was staring into a future that was as empty as her heart. Now her life is a waiting game. Waiting for time to heal her wounds. Waiting for justice. Waiting for a miracle to happen. For Shay Bourne, life holds no more surprises. The world has given him nothing, and he has nothing to offer the world. In a heartbeat, though, something happens one day that changes everything for him. Now he has one last chance for salvation, and it lies with June's twelve-year-old daughter, Claire. But between Shay and Claire stretches an ocean of bitter regrets, past crimes and the rage of a mother who has lost her child.
