Hardly anyone has a cellphone, and Kate blithely "hacks" the computers of banking conglomerates...a gentle touch of romance will keep readers going through an otherwise brutal recitation of human failings.

Synopsis

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels' dazzling new novel, a woman devastated by betrayal embarks on a daring quest for justice. . .

She Lost Everything. . .

Kate and Alex Rocket are blessed with a wonderful marriage and a lovely home. Although Kate can't have children, she and Alex look upon Sara and Emily, daughters of their good friends Don and Debbie Winter, as part of their family.

Except Hope. . .

With one phone call, everything changes. Sara accuses Alex of a terrible act, opening up a vicious rift between the couples. Kate watches helplessly as her innocent husband is convicted and sent to prison. But when even greater tragedy strikes, Kate's grief turns to anger, and she discovers an inner strength and steel-edged resolve to clear her husband's name-and ruin those who destroyed their life together. But Kate's greatest challenge will be in avenging Alex without losing her chance at a new future-and a precious new love. . .

"Heartbreaking, suspenseful, and tender." -Booklist on Return to Sender
 

About Fern Michaels

See more books from this Author
Fern Michaels, who is originally known as Mary Ruth Kuczkir, grew up in Hasting, Pennsylvania, and is fondly known by family and friends as Dink. After her last child entered school, her husband forced her to get a job, when all Michaels knew was motherhood. Instead of approaching the world with no skills, she turned her love of reading into a career and began to write books. After four years of partnering with Ballantine Books in the production of her books, she left her agent, sold her home in New Jersey and moved to South Carolina, where she has remodeled a 300 hundred year old plantation house. Michaels books consist of scrappy heroines, much as she herself was, and the perserverance of the female soul. She considers her true day of prevailance, the epitome of her perseverance, to be the day she was inducted into the New Jersey Literary Hall of Fame. In order to give back some of what she's received, Michaels has set up The Fern Michaels Foundation which allows grants of four year scholarships to needy students. She has also opened affordable pre-school and day care centers for single moms in financial distress. Michaels does not consider herself a writer, merely a good story teller, who has written sixty seven books, most of which appear on the New York Times Best Sellers List, such as Breaking News in 2012.

Before you begin to read make sure that you have several hours without interruption because you will not want to set the book down until you reach the very end.
