When she sees what looks like a child tumbling from a ferry into frigid Lake Champlain, Troy Chance dives after him without thinking. When she gets the child to shore she discovers that his name is Paul, he speaks only French -- and no one is looking for him.
Her determination to protect Paul takes Troy far from her life as a freelance writer in a small Adirondack town, into an unfamiliar world of wealth and privilege in Canada, and into Vermont. Her attachment to the child -- and the dangers that evolve when she tries to unravel the mystery of his abandonment -- force her to evaluate everything she thought true about herself.
The first book in a series featuring the unforgettable Troy Chance, Sara J. Henry's riveting debut will keep listeners engrossed right up to its shattering ending.
