Summary, etc.:
When her step-daughter steals money belonging to Amber, a woman who has since been evicted along with her teenage son, Cassie invites them to move in with her and as they each form friendships, Cassie discovers that Amber is trying to outrun her dark past.
After her husband's sudden death, Cassie Costas's relationship with her teenage stepdaughter unravels. They move to historic Tarpon Springs, Florida, where Savannah hates the town, her school and most of all her stepmom, whom she blames for her father's death. As Cassie searches for answers about the man she shared a life with, including why all their savings have disappeared, Savannah's act of rebellion leaves single mother Amber Blair and her sixteen-year-old son homeless. Cassie invites the strangers to move in but soon realizes Amber is hiding something. What will happen when Amber's past finally catches up to them? -- adapted from back cover.
