Laurie is a good girl. So everyone thinks. But seven months ago, she did something that she can’t undo. And it’s tearing her apart.
Charlie used to be her best friend. He’s done something he regrets to. And now someone has died.
When guilt shatters your world, the hardest person to forgive is yourself.
“Suddenly I remember that night on the beach, when Charlie swam out to the pier and I thought he’d drowned. And everything that followed.
And I can see now. That’s all it takes. One mistake. One moment where you make the wrong decision. And lives are lost, or wrecked forever.”
