Publisher's Summary

"They told me he died, but I never believed them. I’d have known," she says, her voice little more than a whisper and her eyes searching mine. "A mother would know if her child died, wouldn’t she?"

The phone call comes in the middle of the night, rousing Danni from her safe, warm bed. The police have found her mother Diana wandering along the main road, miles from her house, confused and lost. 

Danni races to her mother’s side, but when she arrives, as always, her mother doesn’t seem to care. "Go away, Danni," she says. "I don’t want you."

When she was a child, Danni would lie awake at night wondering what she had done to make her mother so cold. Now, she is determined to put the past behind them and make Diana as happy as she can in the time they have left. 

But as some of Diana’s memories are slipping away, others are forcing their way to the surface. One night Diana breaks down in tears and reveals her heartbreaking secret. Years before Danni was born, there was another baby who never got to see the world. Now there is one last thing Danni can do for her mother. She will find her brother’s resting place, and bring Diana some peace. 

But good intentions can have unexpected consequences, and soon Danni’s life will be changed forever. Are some secrets best left buried? 

A completely heartbreaking and compelling story of families, secrets, and the fierce love between mothers and children. Fans of Amanda Prowse, Ali Mercer, and Jodi Picoult will smile through their tears.
