With her new husband forced to travel around the world in order to convince his colleagues that he’s still worthy of leading his family’s company, Michelle must learn how to survive on her own with her in-laws — a task she’s not sure she’s up to.
When she gets lonelier with each passing day, her sister-in-law, Jane, takes her under her wing. But Michelle soon discovers that being friends with Jane can lead to a whole mountain of trouble.
A betrayal brought on by solitude and desperation makes Michelle doubt everything, including her own self-worth, but a horribly shocking revelation about the nature of Jonathan’s business trip — and just who he’s made it a business to accompany him — sends her running.
Back at her cottage in the woods, away from all of the drama, Michelle focuses on a new life — both her own, and one she’s created — and tries to move forward. But as tragedy strikes once more, and her feelings of worthlessness resurface, she may just find it impossible.
