When Beth Gunner begins teaching English at her high-school alma mater, she must confront a haunting secret from her past. Beth's return to Delaware's Seaton Preparatory Academy fills her with both nostalgia and trepidation. Since her graduation two decades ago, very little has changed - including her irrational fear of failure.
Despite her first day's nervous exhaustion, Beth settles into a manageable routine that includes regular conversations with a gifted loner. And then her high-school sweetheart calls with a clue to the tragic mystery that has disturbed her since that fateful night so long ago.

Probably not - simply because I'm not one to listen to things over again. This doesn't have enough in it to draw me back in again. It had a powerful message but it was developed very slowly.
When you realize that her teacher is still alive.
She does a great job.
Forgiveness brings hope
its not my favorite Ann Tatlock book. Several times during the book I was really ready to give up on it as it was so depressing - however it was realistic. The ending redeemed itself for me so I would recommend it. But it isn't a easy feel good book.
My commutes seemed faster when I listened to this book....I fell asleep each time.
I am a life long Delaware resident and it was nice to listen to a book set in Delaware.
