When she sees what looks like a child tumbling from a ferry into frigid Lake Champlain, Troy Chance dives after him without thinking. When she gets the child to shore she discovers that his name is Paul, he speaks only French - and no one is looking for him.

Her determination to protect Paul takes Troy far from her life as a freelance writer in a small Adirondack town, into an unfamiliar world of wealth and privilege in Canada, and into Vermont. Her attachment to the child - and the dangers that evolve when she tries to unravel the mystery of his abandonment - force her to evaluate everything she thought true about herself.

The first book in a series featuring the unforgettable Troy Chance, Sara J. Henry's riveting debut will keep listeners engrossed right up to its shattering ending.

"Readers will be cheering for Troy Chance as she deftly navigates the treacherous waters of betrayal and loss, and they'll be looking forward to seeing her again when the book is closed." - Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of Fragile

"Sara J. Henry opens her first novel like a pro....The throbbing heart of the story is right out of Jane Eyre." - The New York Times Book Review
