Her children are throwing a party for her fiftieth birthday. Ellie Frost will pretend that everything is fine.
She'll pretend she's celebrating, not mourning. That all the children are still there, in her house as they are in her memories. That she and Curt are still in love, not on the verge of signing divorce papers. But her facade is about to be stripped away, laying bare her heart and soul.
Curt and Ellie's marriage collapsed under the weight of their mutual grief--and her private despair. They lost not only a child, but the core of trust that made their relationship rock-solid.
For one night, thrown closer together than they've been for months, Ellie and Curt confront the betrayals and guilt that have eaten away at their life together. But with love as the foundation, their "home on Hope Street" still stands--they just need the courage to cross the threshold again.
