After the death of her father, eighteen-year-old Sherlyn uncovers hidden truths about his life and the horrific deeds he committed that could have a lasting impact on her life. As she struggles with the reality of her haunted past, she realizes that these unexpected truths may not be so easy to bury.
When her mother dies under tragic circumstances, Sherlyn leans on her best friend, Sophie Valentine, and her family, but even their love and support can’t erase her heartache. When she attracts the attention of one of her father’s former associates, she can’t help but wonder if everything she ever knew was a lie.

Even the best of intentions can’t stop Stephen from pushing away the light to continue his journey through the darkness alone. It’s everything he can do just to keep the remnants of his life intact—until tragedy strikes.
