"The compelling story of secrets--those we keep from one another and those we bury within ourselves. On a rainy afternoon in 1985, Corey Moore runs into his childhood girlfriend, Gina, at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Eleventh Street [in New York]. Precipitously, they marry. Three years later, Jack, an actor friend of Gina's, appears at their Connecticut farmhouse, introducing unprecedented intensity, damage and ultimately, hope. In a parallel story, the reader learns of Corey's secret bond with his teacher when he was thirteen and his early love for Gina, who left their small New England town unexpectedly and never returned. Secrets are revealed that change everyone's lives in ways they could never have imagined. Reflective and textured, [the book] is a story of adolescent trauma and its effect on adult lives. It is also a story of the destructive power of withholding. Ultimately ... a story of love appearing in unexpected and varied forms."--P.  of cover.
