When the note arrives in the mail, it’s a warning that the wonderful life Melissa McCurdy has built, is about to be shattered. Married for twenty-five years, with two grown children, Melissa has been planning for the peaceful Golden Years. With the arrival of the cryptic message from a friend, she must confront the past which she tried hard to hide. How can she find a way to explain nearly thirty years of deception?
Twenty-eight years ago, Melissa, known then as Terry, was involved in a terrible crime. The whole incident remains a fuzzy memory since her perception was warped by drugs and alcohol. Even her guilt is fraught with questions. Somehow, she must find a way to seek the truth from the tragedy.
More frightening than knowing she could spend the rest of her life in prison, is revealing her sordid history to her family. She never shared stories of her younger years, hoping that they remained dead and buried. Now, her revelations may bring an end all the joy and love she worked so hard to secure. No matter how she analyzes it, she cannot find a way to reveal her past without destroying her future.
Melissa McCurdy, aka Terry Roche, is about to get a lesson in the power of love.
