But now her marriage is unraveling and her teenage daughter is hurtling toward a self-destructive calamity. While Rebecca struggles to hang on to her husband and save her daughter, she learns of the mysterious death of a young woman long ago at a local prison and her family’s connection to the girl, Rose. It is a story that haunts Rebecca. Her search for answers takes Rebecca from the small idyllic New England town where she lives to her big Italian family still residing in the old tight-knit neighborhood in East Boston. As she tries to dig up the facts of the young girl’s life and violent death, Rebecca’s own buried secrets surface. She finally gains insight into the choices she’s made, facing the difficult truth about her husband, Drew.
