Emily is back in Ireland after nine long years away from home, when she sees him. Her ex-husband, Rob, holding hands with a five-year-old girl. A girl that should be hers.

Over a decade before, Emily and Rob were exhausted but ecstatic new parents, delighting in the arrival of their longed-for baby daughter, Alannah. But tragedy was just a few weeks away, and in their unfathomable grief, Emily and Rob's marriage fell apart.

Emily moved to New Zealand to get away – but returning to Dublin nearly a decade later for her mother's funeral, she finds herself face-to-face with her past. The man she loved has a new daughter, beautiful little Molly, and Emily's heart breaks yet again for everything that could have – should have – been.

But Rob and Molly's lives aren't without their own misfortunes.

Could a second chance at family heal all their broken hearts?

Caroline Finnerty's tender and poignant new novel is perfect for fans of Amanda Prowse, Emma Robinson and Alison Ragsdale.
