Edie loves Ricky but her parents don't approve. At sixteen she thinks she's old enough to make her own choices, be her own person. Old enough to know what she wants from life. But when tragedy turns Edie's world upside down, she's thrown out of the comforting embrace of childhood once and for all.
Twenty years later, with a young family of her own, Edie is called back home. And now she's full of questions:
What happened to the people who still haunt her dreams? How long can family secrets remain hidden?
And what became of the things that, at sixteen, Edie knew were true?
