Where there’s a before, and then, without warning or apology, there’s an after.
Abigail Wolff’s before was as a thoughtful journalist. Who desired to do the right thing and reveal the truth but the after changed her life and her career. She began to live in guilt. When her story caused the suicide of her subject whom she believed to be the perpetrator, she begins to question herself. Who really was the victim? Confronted by the son who wants to know the truth brings her a lead to clear his mother’s name. What will she find? Abigail’s sense of right and wrong comes from her military family. Her father drilled to her sense of duty and country, she realizes that she needs to do the right thing and the fine line between right and truth.
The fine line of right and truth comes to a head when she is put in the middle of investigation that involves her father, the army and the family of Zack Anderson who was killed in action. Zack Anderson was the good guy that America loved who left his successful life as an actor to fight for his country. His family wants the answers to the death of their son and brother. What is the army hiding from Zack’s family? Abigail is drawn to this family, the strength of Zack’s mother Jean and the brokenness that Zack’s brother is experiencing is more than Abigail can handle. As Abigail works thru her emotions and discovering the part that her father played, will the side of truth be on the right side or will it devastate all that Abigail holds dear.
The plot twists and turns as there is two stories that come together in the end. A fight for truth and the right thing always makes a great story! I loved this one.
