Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Deborah Bedford sweeps readers into this compelling drama with her trademark style of beautiful, lyrical writing.

Since her divorce from Eric, Hilary has done everything she can to control life for herself and her son, Seth. Beneath a calm surface, she is terrified of failing Seth. She’s worked hard to raise him on her own, and she’s succeeded—he’s now set to graduate from high school and enroll at Emhurst College with a full scholarship.

But Hilary’s worst fears are realized when there is a rock-climbing accident at a postgraduation campout. A young girl is hurt, and Seth is arrested. Pamela, Eric’s new wife and Seth’s stepmother, blames Hilary for letting Seth go to the campout in the first place. With Seth’s college scholarship now just a distant memory and his entire future at stake, the two women must come together for Seth’s sake.

Is Hilary’s love strong enough to save her son and release him to her ex-husband’s other wife?
