Gage Dekker still blames himself for the car accident that claimed the lives of his first wife and young son. Then he meets Anna, who understands grief all too well. Within a year, they are married and soon ready to become parents once more. But a miscarriage brings new heartbreak--until fate brings them Lily. Young, pregnant, and homeless, Lily agrees to give her baby to the Dekkers in exchange for financial support.
With his wife happy and his career thriving, Gage feels a renewed sense of hope. But something isn't right once Lily enters their lives. At work and at home, Gage is being sabotaged, first in subtle ways--then more sinister. Every attempt he makes to uncover the truth only drives a wedge between him and Anna. And even as he's propelled toward an unthinkable choice to save his marriage and his job, Gage discovers the most chilling revelations are still to come. . .
