New York Times best-selling author Robyn Carr creates an emotional and uplifting ensemble of characters in this rags-to-riches-to-rags novel about women, friendship, and the complex path to happiness.
In the aftermath of her financier husband's suicide, Emma Shay Compton's dream life is shattered. Richard Compton stole his clients' life savings to fund a lavish life in New York City, and, although she was never involved in the business, Emma bears the burden of her husband's crimes. She is left with nothing. Only one friend stands by her, a friend she's known since high school, who encourages her to come home to Sonoma County.
But starting over isn't easy, and Sonoma is full of unhappy memories, too. And people she'd rather not face, especially Riley Kerrigan. Riley and Emma were like sisters - until Riley betrayed Emma, ending their friendship. Emma left town, planning to never look back. Now, trying to stand on her own two feet, Emma can't escape her husband's reputation and is forced to turn to the last person she thought she'd ever ask for help - her former best friend.
It's an uneasy reunion as both women face the mistakes they've made over the years. Only if they find a way to forgive each other - and themselves - can each of them find the life she wants.

Believer in what you can't see
What a giving story, it had its challenging moments, but it was still a story about forgiveness and love, and it will make you feel good at the end.
There are few authors that I automatically buy and listen to because they are real and uplifting stories with caring and loving people in them and Robyn Carr is one of them. I start with Virgin River and have read almost all of her stories and have never regretted it.
Audio Books is my new passion. They have made my time in the car the last few years something to look forward to. Just Lovin Life!
This was a good story and I enjoyed listening but it was very close to "Swept Away" by Robyn Carr. I guess I listened to them too close together. Seems almost like the same story. But I would still recommend.
There aren't many books by Robyn Carr that I haven't listened to in the past. Therese Plummer's narrating skills always makes me feel like I'm coming home. It's a warm and cozy sensation that I sincerely can't explain. As usual, I was sad to have this book end. I think it's the ending on most of her books that fulfills and satisfies within. Robyn...PLEASE keep writing...and could you hurry a little?
The CARR/PLUMMER team never disappoints!
If you enjoy this genre this story will fill the bill. I enjoy other genres much more and I won't be seeking another read from the same author or narrator.
Love this author and especially the narrator!! Want more from the author and the narrator!! Even though they are predictable, they are a great listen!
Yes, Robyn Carr's books are always terrific. This book is no exception. I would highly recommend it.
Yes, I have heard Therese Plummer's narration of several books. Her narration is always excellent.
