Excerpt: Maggie realized that life wouldn’t be as much fun if we knew where its treasures were hidden. Sometimes you had to search for them. Sometimes you had to fight for them And sometimes, they were at your feet.
To Maggie Ippoliti a call from her teenage daughter Anna whom she hasn’t seen in 17 years is an unbelievable gift, one she certainly hadn’t been expecting. Having been declared an unfit mother due to postpartum psychosis, Maggie lost touch with her daughter at 6 months. Never once has she been allowed to see the girl since that time due to the vindictive nature of her ex-spouse.
Dr. Noah Alderman, well respected pediatrician in the community and husband of Maggie, welcomes his stepdaughter into their home with no knowledge of what the future will hold for his family. Noah’s son, Caleb, is a trusting young boy of ten whose life is turned upside down by the events that will unfold in the month following Anna’s arrival.
Alternating chapters–Noah’s viewpoint during the trial and Maggie’s perspective before and during the trial–disclose the story detail by detail. The mystery that surrounds Anna and her death add suspense and intrigue to the story. I definitely didn’t see the ending coming. Read this interesting story and see if you can put the details together!
