Friendship, Love and Forgiveness

Award-winning author Barbara Delinsky creates a spellbinding novel that explores the most powerful emotions within the human heart and soul. The Maxwells and the Popes are two families whose lives are interwoven like the threads of a beautiful, yet ultimately delicate, tapestry: the women were college roommates, their husbands are partners in the same law firm, their kids have grown up next door to each other, and they share both vacations and holidays.

But when their idyllic lives are unexpectedly shattered by a moment that can never be erased or forgotten, their faith in each other -- and in themselves -- is put to the supreme test. Their story is one that strikes a chord in all of us, embracing as it does the universal passions that life has to offer...a story only Barbara Delinsky could tell.
