Riassunto: From the New York Times bestselling author of Woman in Red comes an intimate story of friendship lost and regained, old loves rekindled, and a baptism by fire that ultimately leads to the redemption of three very special women. It begins with a betrayal that tears apart childhood friends, Abigail and Lila, when Abigail's mother, the housekeeper for Lila's wealthy family, is summarily banished, casting Abigail from the only home she has ever known. Now, twenty-five years later, Abigail is a self-made successful cookbook author and TV personality. When Lila, who married well and for decades lived the glittering life of a Park Avenue socialite, suffers a tragic reversal of fortune, she seeks out the help of her childhood friend. Penniless and all but unemployable, Lila approaches Abigail about a job, and Abigail gives her one: as her housekeeper. But revenge is not as sweet as Abigail had imagined. Lila's reentry into Abigail's life brings along some unexpected complications and questions: Will Abigail be reunited with her girlhood love, Lila's twin brother, Vaughn? Will Concepcin, the grief-stricken mother whose daughter perished in the fire that consumed Abigail's factory, succeed in tracking Abigail down and confronting her about her daughter's death? Will Lila ever find love in the wake of her husband's suicide? In this sweeping emotional tale, Abigail, Lila, and Concepcin are thrown together and forced to unite in order to save one anotherand themselves.
Sinossi: “Rosie and Abigail are like family,? Ina Merriweather used to say. That is, until the day Ina abruptly cast out her housekeeper, Rosie, and her fifteen-year-old daughter Abigail. Abigail felt deeply betrayed, especially by Ina?s daughter Lila, who was her closest friend. Only Lila?s twin brother Vaughn, with whom Abigail had been exploring the joys and heartaches of first love, showed any compassion. Now, twenty-five years later, an old score is about to be settled...and an old love rekindled. Abigail is now a self-made woman who has built an empire out of the homemaking skills she learned from her mother. When Lila, who married well and for decades lived the glittering life of a Park Avenue socialite, suffers a tragic reversal of fortune, an opportunity to right an old wrong lands squarely in Abigail?s lap. Lila seeks the help of her childhood friend, but learns that the only opening available at the moment is as her housekeeper and Lila has no choice but to accept. At the same time, Abigail is coping with the fallout from a fire in her Mexico factory, which took the life of an innocent girl, whose mother, Concepción Morales, now seeks the rich señora she holds responsible for her daughter?s death. In a collision of fate, Abigail, Lila, and Concepción are thrown together and must unite to save one another...and themselves.
