Everyone loves a juicy secret—but what if it’s so horrible it could destroy your life?
Sitting by the bedside of her dying mother, Gwen is told a secret so startling that she can only hope that what she is hearing are simply the delusions of an over-medicated woman in her final hours of life. But in the weeks and months following the funeral, that hope crumbles as more pieces of evidence come to light, threatening everything Gwen holds dear. Then tragedy strikes once more.
Desperate to move on with her life, Gwen sets out to discover the truth—only to be confronted with a question that is far more difficult to answer: Are there some secrets that are best left secret?
