Back Cover / Inside Flap:"Miles Ryan's life seemed to end the day his wife was killed in a hit-and-run accident two years ago. As deputy sheriff of New Bern, North Carolina, he not only grieves for her and worries about their young son Jonah but longs to bring the unknown driver to justice. Then Miles meets Sarah Andrews, Jonah's second-grade teacher. A young woman recovering from a difficult divorce, Sarah moved to New Bern hoping to start over. Tentatively, Miles and Sarah reach out to each other...soon they are falling in love. But what neither realizes is that they are also bound together by a shocking secret, one that will force them to reexamine everything they believe in - including their love."


Review:Sparks always goes for the fast grab of his reader's hearts and he doesn't fail in that pursuit with this book. It is easy to fall into the lives of Miles and his son, Jonah, who are struggling to survive as a family after the death of their wife and mom. As a vigilant cop, Miles is seeking not only to serve his community but also to solve his wife's hit and run death. Sarah comes into their lives at just the right time to help complete their little family...but a secret will come from her past that rocks the entire story wide open. Gripping, compelling and thoroughly interesting. Must read!
