“What are they saying? Matt, what’s happened?”
A family argument; an accident; and Ashley finds herself tumbling into a world of pain and secrets nestled so deep that she struggles to come to terms with the fact that the father she once thought she knew is in fact a complete stranger.
In the wake of the unexplained accident, Ashley fights against the raw grief that seeks to engulf her and, as she does so, learns whose smile she can and cannot trust.
When a fantastic opportunity is thrown her way, Ashley will stand for everything she believes in and go to the furthest of lengths to see it realised. Perhaps it is her only way to stay connected to the hope that what she fights for can somehow solve the tragedy that has rocked her family. Perhaps it is her way of answering to the guilt plaguing the back of her mind.
Kate White comes from beautiful New Zealand, where this story is set. As she travels the world, she puts her experiences into her writing, her plot and characters, assessing the tests friendships and families encounter, and reflecting on the frequently challenging reality of the world we live in.
