(From the publisher):
Isabel Barker lifted her face and blinked hard at the silver skeleton and black waterproof cloth of her umbrella. As long as she didn’t let the tears fall, she wasn’t crying.
She was a fraud. A widow who wanted to throw herself on her husband’s coffin, kicking and screaming--with rage. Each snowflake that wetly smacked her umbrella was a drumbeat reiterating one word in her head.
She stared at the cheater’s casket. Snow traced the improbably polished mahogany with white lace and mixed with the tears of the real mourners who clustered around Will’s open grave.
She wanted to scream the truth. Will had cheated on her. With her sister. Her sister, damn him--and damn Faith, too.
He and Faith had made a baby, despite the fact he’d always told Isabel he wasn’t ready for children. Faith and Will had been trying to run away with eighteen-month-old Tony the afternoon they’d died in a car crash. It was the only explanation for the suitcases the police had found in the wreckage. Tony, miraculously alive in his car seat, couldn’t explain.
Isabel turned her face away from Will’s coffin, grateful that her nephew had survived. She couldn’t look at her parents or at Ben Jordan--Faith’s husband. Ben had also been Will’s best friend. And Isabel’s, too.
