A solid-gold pedigree and the illusion of wealth can't guarantee a life of serendipity -- not even if you're Carter Reed. Cadence Reed learns this hard lesson after her husband of twenty-five years dies on a blizzard-swept Michigan highway - along with his pregnant young mistress. Now alone, Cadie discovers Carter has squandered the family trust on his secret life, and has sold half of his business to longtime friend and attorney, John Sloane. The lubricious Sloane delights in taunting Cadie, his interest transcending the mere business relationship.
Untangling Carter's mess consumes more than time. Sick and heartbroken, worried for her son’s education and her future, Cadie questions her life choices. A cross country journey with her son, Jackson, retraces her history – and peels away the veneer of learned aristocracy to reveal her own secrets. Only when she reconciles her past can she execute a plan to start a new life.
