*Re-issued with a new cover in 2015*
From the author of 'Tully, The Bronze Horseman' and 'Tatiana and Alexander' comes a story as emotionally involving and broad in sweep as only Paullina Simons can tell.
What if everything you believed about your existence turned out to be a lie? Meet Lily Quinn. She is broke, struggling to finish college, pay her rent, find love. Adrift in bustling New York City, the most interesting things in Lily's life happen to the people around her. But Lily loves her aimless life . . . until her best friend and roommate, Amy, disappears. That's when Spencer Patrick O'Malley - a cynical, past-his-prime NYPD detective with demons of his own - enters Lily's world. And a sudden financial windfall which should bring Lily joy instead becomes an ominous portent of the dark forces gathering around her.
But fate isn't finished with Lily. She finds herself fighting for her life as Spencer's search for the missing Amy intensifies, leading Lily to question everything she knew about her friend and family. Startling revelations about the people she loves force her to confront truths that will leave her changed forever.
From a master storyteller comes a new heart-wrenching, magnificent and riveting novel. This is the odyssey of two young women, Lily and Amy, roommates and friends on the verge of the rest of their lives.
