Secrets cannot lie buried forever. Caroline Webb is bound by duty to a loveless marriage and relies on the memory of a brief and passionate love affair to sustain her. Sarah Bilyk strives to be the mother she never had to her three daughters while facing personal insecurities and a danger threatening her family and livelihood. The women, connected through Caroline's daughter and Sarah's best friend -- the willful Rebecca -- develop a bond that is torn apart by an act of deception and betrayal. On opposing sides of a long simmering feud between their husbands' families, they are reunited when Caroline moves into the same nursing home as Sarah's father. Told in alternating voices over the span of sixty years, the women find moments of tenderness, passion, and humour amidst the stark reality of farm life on the Manitoba parkland, and, together, find what they've both been seeking.
