Two mothers face the consequences of their choices in a gripping novel about friendship, family, and forgiveness by Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Jamie Beck.
Grace first met Mimi when she blew into their sons’ toddler playgroup like a warm bay breeze that loosened Grace’s tight spaces. Despite differing approaches to life and parenting, the fast friends raised their kids together while cementing a sisterlike bond that neither believed could be broken. But when a string of ill-fated decisions results in a teen party with a tragic outcome for Grace’s son, the friendship is ripped apart and an already-splintered community explodes.
Accusations are leveled, litigation ensues, and the people of Potomac Point take sides, all of which threatens Mimi’s business and her current custody agreement. Her sole salvation is a young cop who just might be her second chance at love. That fact only antagonizes Grace, whose marriage is crumbling beneath the weight of blame and the echo of past mistakes.
With their lives unraveling, the former friends stand to lose everything they love unless they learn to forgive—both themselves and each other.
Mimi is a single mother who is much more casual both when it comes to life and her son. She believes that she needs to give her son the freedom to make choices not realizing that one choice could destroy two families. She is devastated by the events of that evening and is grieving for her friend Grace’s family but feels powerless to help.
This is an emotional story of two friends with very different views on life and family who now find themselves and the town on opposite sides. They both have so much to lose, and it is only with forgiveness and soul-searching that they may be able to have the healing they both need.
