Description of this Book

In this propulsive debut thriller, two women with their own dangerous secrets are thrown together by a chance meeting that plunges both their lives into chaos, with a sick little girl's fate hanging in the balance. Claire comes from a family of professional psychics. Her talented mother predicts futures for clients from around the globe. But Claire hides a shocking truth the great psychic herself doesn't know: Claire may carry on the family business, but she doesn't really have the gift and hasn't for a long time. In fact, she's a fraud. Her path will soon intersect with Rena's, a divorced mother and avid mommy blogger anxious to help her sick four-year-old daughter, Stephanie, who is plagued by a mysterious stomach ailment. No matter how many specialists they've seen, the doctors can't seem to cure Stephanie. Growing increasingly desperate, Rena pack ups and moves across the country to find Stephanie the help she needs. Getting settled in their new place, she meets Louis, who may-or may not-be the answer to all her prayers. An encounter on an airplane throws both Rena's and Claire's carefully constructed lives into a tailspin. Can these two very different women help each other? And what will become of Stephanie?
