The irony of life is not lost on high school guidance counselor Rachel Forrester: while she is educating teens about good choices, her own life is spiraling out of control.

As Rachel struggles to get her life in order, her fifteen-year-old son, Nick, forges a bond with the taciturn Cameron. Oddly, it is this bond that opens new doors of healing and promise for them all.

A story of sisters, secrets and . . . private lives.

Elizabeth Walker has spent most of the past three decades trying to forget the loss of her mother and father, a lonely childhood spent in a series of foster homes and the two baby sisters she hasn't seen in twenty-five years. She values her privacy above everything, and has built a wall around herself that few people have ever climbed.

But when her best friend, Gina, risks losing her young daughter to an impersonal court system -- the same system that failed Elizabeth many years ago -- she vows to fight back. But Elizabeth needs help. She needs the kind of help that a family can give, and she needs Ryan Paxton, the brilliant attorney whose tragic family history is intertwined with her own.

As the custody battle turns to something more dangerous -- and more deadly -- Elizabeth comes face-to-face with a past she has tried to forget and a future she wants to embrace.
