The author, Mary Lynn, has worn many hats—secretary, certified nursing assistant, and retail manager, among others—but none has meant as much to her as writer. After earning a bachelor’s degree in management, she took a bold step in pursuit of her dream of becoming a full-time writer in 2012, applying and gaining acceptance to the Master of Fine Arts Program in Creative Writing at Fairleigh Dickinson University. There she honed her craft, and shortly after graduation in 2015, realized her dream. These days, she spends her time writing and researching her first novel, due to be completed later this year. Residing in northern Illinois, Mary Lynn is married and enjoys spending time with her husband, three grown children and four grandchildren.
Delia Reddick has become quite skilled at keeping people at arm’s length. She learned it from her parents, Savannah, Georgia’s most ruthless attorney, Greyson James Reddick IV and his rebellious wife, Charlotte Ann. A successful editor for one of New York’s most prestigious publishing firms, Delia has managed to put her past behind her. That is, until Oliver calls. “Your mother has passed, Delia. Your father needs you now.” Returning to Savannah, Delia focuses on the task of burying her mother, discovering in the process that neither Charlotte nor Greyson are the parents she thought she knew. Confronted with the truth of her family’s past, it is up to Delia to reveal a secret Charlotte kept hidden to the one person who scares her, and in doing so, learning a bit of truth about herself and what it means to forgive.
