A stunning tale from the internationally bestselling author of Evergreen.
Donald and Lillian were never a match made in heaven, but they have a child, Tina, and she is the love of Donald's heart.
For her he would give up everything: his home, his work and even his freedom. When his marriage fails, he does just that.
A chance meeting with a stranger on a train changes his life - and his daughter's - in ways he could never have imagined.
From her earliest years Tina is exceptional, a brilliant student and a joyous person with a loving spirit. At university she falls in love with Gilbert who, three years older than she, graduates from law school just as she is about to enter medical school.
Together they go to New York, where they learn a truth about Donald that shatters Tina's regard for the father who has for so long protected and cherished her.
When a terrible lie has been told for love, can it be forgiven?
