About the Book
Everything changes in a single moment for Dawn Edelstein. She’s on a plane when the flight attendant makes an announcement: Prepare for a crash landing. Thoughts flash through her mind. The shocking thing is, the thoughts are not of her husband but of a man she last saw 15 years ago: Wyatt Armstrong. Dawn survives the crash, but so do all the doubts that have suddenly been raised. After the crash landing, the airline offers the survivors transportation to wherever they want to go. The obvious destination is to fly home, but she could take another path: to reconnect with Wyatt and their unresolved history. As the story unfolds, Dawn’s two possible futures unspool side by side, as do the secrets and doubts long buried with them.
