A woman's birthday party takes a dark turn in a poignant, heart-stopping new novel from a NYT and USA Today bestselling author.
It's Livia's fortieth birthday. Her husband, Adam, is throwing her the party of a lifetime, to make up for the wedding celebration they never had. Everyone Livia loves will be there, except for her daughter, Marnie, who’s studying abroad. But Livia is secretly glad that Marnie won’t be there. Livia has recently uncovered a secret about their daughter that, if revealed, will shake the foundation of their family to its core. She needs to tell Adam what she knows. But Livia plans to wait until the party is over so they can have this last happy time together.
Adam, meanwhile, has his own surprise for Livia: He’s arranged for Marnie to fly back for the party. But before Marnie arrives, Adam hears some terrible news. Now he too is faced with a dilemma: Does he share what he’s learned with his wife? Is hiding the truth the same as telling a lie? And how far are Adam and Livia willing to go to protect the ones they love—and give each other a last few hours of happiness?
