Decades later, she told her real daughter the truth, but asked Rose to keep her secret, lest it destroy Rachel, the girl Sylvie raised as her own. Then, after years of silence, the two women’s lives, intertwined in more ways than one, are once more turned upside down. In this sequel to the blockbuster Garden of Lies, Rose and Rachel, bound forever by a secret that only one of them understands, must both find the courage to face the truth.
