Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a doctor in Vietnam, Lily survived unimaginable terror and loss. Now, safely ensconced in a close-knit Maine town and a seemingly comfortable marriage, she no longer needs to be afraid, but she is: afraid of light, afraid of sudden sounds, afraid of seeing the wide-eyed child of war who haunts her. So Lily is unprepared for the act of betrayal that threatens to take away the one thing she cannot live without: her young son. Plunged into a bitter custody battle, befriended by a man with a heartbreaking secret of his own, Lily must fight–to escape her own memories, to survive an uncertain future, and to protect, above all else, the love between a mother and child.

Synopsis:

Haunted by her horrific memories as a doctor in Vietnam, Lily has built a safe new life for herself in a small Maine town, until her husband leaves her and sues for custody of their son. A first novel. Reader's Guide available. Original. 25,000 first printing.
