Faith Madison is the very picture of a sophisticated New Yorker.
Slim, blonde, stylish, married to a successful merchant banker and having raised two daughters, Faith has a life many would envy.
But Faith has overcome a childhood marred by tragedy, and has carried within herself a secret she could divulge to no-one.
The sudden death of her stepfather sets off a journey of change and revelation.
At the funeral, painful memories flood back - and an old friend re-enters Faith's life.
Brad, a long lanky boy from her childhood days who had teased, tormented and protected her.
Now a busy lawyer in California, Brad re-enters Faith's life just as she makes a decision that plunges her marriage into crisis.
As these two childhood friends rediscover each other, Faith is finally ready to face the most painful step of all: of sharing a secret that has long been haunting her, and opening up her heart for the first time in her life.
