Tabitha Brewer wakes up one morning to find her husband
gone, leaving her no way to support herself and their two
children, never mind their upscale Philadelphia
lifestyle. She’d confess her situation to her friends—if
it wasn’t for those dreadful words of warning in his
goodbye note: “I’ll tell them what you did.”
Instead, she does her best to keep up appearances, even
as months pass and she can barely put food on the table—
much less replace a light bulb. While she looks for a
job, she lives in fear that someone will see her stuffing
toilet paper into her handbag or pinching basil from a
neighbor’s window box.
Soon, blindsided by catastrophe, surprised by romance,
and stunned by the kindness of a stranger, Tabitha
realizes she can’t keep her secrets forever. Sooner or
later, someone is bound to figure out that her life is
far from perfect.
