In the vein of Meg Donohue and Sarah Jio, Cecilia Galante’s
second novel delivers the powerful story of one young woman
who’s faced with an impossible choice—one that could have
her making the biggest mistake of her life.
Thirteen days. That’s all Bernadette, “Bird,” Sincavage has
left to go until she’s done with her probation and can be
free again. Free from making payments to the supermarket she
wrote bad checks to. Free from living at home with her
overzealous mother who’s constantly nagging her about
attending church again. Free to give her four-year-old son,
Angus, the normal life he deserves. Her impending freedom
and move to Moon Lake, where she’s plunked down a deposit on
a brand new apartment, is so close she can almost taste it.
What trouble could she possibly get into in just thirteen days?
But trouble does follow in the form of James
Rittenhouse—someone she worked with a few years ago. At
first, Bird is stunned to see James make the evening news
when he’s arrested for assaulting someone in a local bar.
But that’s nothing compared to the shock she gets when she
discovers James hiding out in an abandoned church choir
loft. Somehow he escaped police custody, broke his leg, and
got his hand on a gun, which he’s now pointing at her.
Although Bird doesn’t tell anyone she saw James, there’s no
way she’s helping him. She can’t screw up her probation or
her second chance for a new future. And she has her son’s
welfare to think about. Still. If only she could stop
thinking about the terrified look in James’ eyes and the
fact that he’s hurt. If only she could forget that once,
long ago, James helped her out, and she owes him a debt like
Will Bird jeopardize her future for someone who helped her
out in the past? A past that holds secrets she’s not quite
sure she’s ready to face? Or will she turn a blind eye and
learn to live with the consequences?
