From USA Today bestselling author Emilie Richards comes an emotional story about love, loyalty, and the deep bonds of sisterhood. While love and loyalty made them sisters, secrets could still destroy them. As children in foster care, Cecilia and Robin vowed they would be the sisters each had never had. Cecelia, now a superstar singer-songwriter, is living life on the edge. Robin set aside her career as a successful photojournalist to create the loving family she always yearned for. But gazing through a wide-angle lens at both past and future, she sees that her marriage is disintegrating. Her attorney husband is rarely home. She and the children need Kris’ love and attention, but does Kris need them? For Cecilia, a lifetime of lies has finally caught up with her, and she wants a chance to tell the real story of their childhood and free herself from the nightmares that still haunt her. When she asks Robin to be the still photographer for a documentary on foster care, Robin agrees, even though Kris will be forced to take charge for the months she’s away. She gambles that he’ll prove to them both that their children—and their marriage—are a priority in his life. As the documentary unfolds, memories will be tested and the meaning of family redefined, but the love two young girls forged into bonds of sisterhood will help them move forward as the women they were always meant to be.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Richards exceptionally delves into a delicate social issue in this poignant, insightful morality tale. With an incredibly intuitive storytelling voice, she delivers an engaging, empathic, chilling page-turner highlighting the good and evil of foster care—and especially the fragility of the children placed there. Her two extraordinary protagonists and the explosive revelations are unforgettable.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
