bestsellers Save Me, Think Twice
and Look Again
. Now, with Come Home
, she ratchets up the suspense with the riveting story of a mother who sacrifices her future for a child from her past.
Jill Farrow is moving forward with her life after a devastating divorce. Her work as a pediatrician is hectic but fulfilling, she’s newly engaged to a kind and loving medical researcher and her daughter, Megan, is finally happy again and doing well in middle school.
But when Jill’s distraught ex-stepdaughter, Abby, shows up on her doorstep with the news of her father's death from an apparent overdose, Jill’s life is thrust back into turmoil. Abby believes her father was murdered and pleads with Jill to help her look into his death. Jill can’t turn her back on Abby, even though helping her threatens to rip apart the fabric of her new family, destroy her hard-earned stability—and leave Megan an orphan.
Asking the questions, “Can you ever have an ex-child?”
and “Are there limits to the love of family?”, Come Home
reads with the breakneck pace of a thriller while also exploring the definition of motherhood.
