When Adam Smith's wife goes into labor with their first child, Adam hits crisis point. He swore that his life would be nothing like his mother's--a life he believes was destroyed by the demands of raising him and his brothers and sisters. Now he's backed into a corner, unable to find a way out. But how much does Adam really know about his mother?
Grace, Adam's mother, thinks her life is perfect--and so does everyone else she knows. With a loving husband, four beautiful children, and an idyllic life on a idaho farmstead, she has everything she wants. Then she meets Paul Mayfield, the charming, handsome, single farmer who lives across the road, and her perfect life seems like a sham. How can Grace escape the hollow shell of her former happiness when her only choices are to betray her family or deny her heart?
In this passionate and nuanced novel, the stories of Adam's crisis and Grace's trial by fire intertwine to show us that no one knows what will happen until the apple falls.
