This emotionally charged novel plays out a split-second choice from which there is no turning back.
When Mike Scanlon is called to serve as an army doctor in Afghanistan, he's aware of the risk it will pose to his wife Chloe and their newborn baby. But as Mike operates in the midst of a war zone, Chloe dies at home in an apparent household accident. Devastated, Mike returns to discover the life he left has fallen apart. And that he is a stranger to his only remaining family - his precious daughter.
As Mike begins to pick up the pieces around him - and learns to be a father to a child he barely knows - a shocking secret sends him into a downward spiral.
Now he faces the most important battle of his life, and must put everything on the line to save what he values above all else - his family.
