In the vein of Meg Donohue and Sarah Jio, Cecilia Galanteâ€™s
second novel delivers the powerful story of one young woman
whoâ€™s faced with an impossible choiceâ€”one that could have
her making the biggest mistake of her life.
Thirteen days. Thatâ€™s all Bernadette, â€śBird,â€ť Sincavage has
left to go until sheâ€™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 whoâ€™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 sheâ€™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
Rittenhouseâ€”someone she worked with a few years ago. At
first, Bird is stunned to see James make the evening news
when heâ€™s arrested for assaulting someone in a local bar.
But thatâ€™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 heâ€™s now pointing at her.
Although Bird doesnâ€™t tell anyone she saw James, thereâ€™s no
way sheâ€™s helping him. She canâ€™t screw up her probation or
her second chance for a new future. And she has her sonâ€™s
welfare to think about. Still. If only she could stop
thinking about the terrified look in Jamesâ€™ eyes and the
fact that heâ€™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 sheâ€™s not quite
sure sheâ€™s ready to face? Or will she turn a blind eye and
learn to live with the consequences?
