After enduring years of manipulation and an immeasurable amount of loss, Charlotte Kelly makes one last-ditch effort to change her life and try to find happiness again. She knows she'll see him when she moves back to Wisconsin. She's planning on it; the connection she still feels to him after all these years is undeniable. But one lie tore them apart years ago, and she's afraid some mistakes can't be forgiven.
When a stop at a shady motel puts Brandon Parker face-to-face with his best friend, Mary, for the first time in over a decade, he almost didn't believe it. He'd never stopped searching for her, but even a career in law enforcement couldn't help him find a woman who wanted to stay invisible. When Mary Benson ran away at 18, she did it with good reason. A man was in the hospital because of her, and the people she loved were in danger. She had to leave to keep them safe.
