She once had a life, a husband, a home. So what made her run?

Edith Lutz doesn't want to be found. She's vanished in a flurry of hastily packed bags and with a new look, name and job as live-in housekeeper to divorced publisher Adam, she's hoping to evade her past and build a new life. Again.

But she soon becomes more than just the woman who does the dishes. Lingering over summer evenings with Adam, Edith experiences love for the first time, while her boss knows nothing of the real woman he's falling for.

Haunted by an impossible choice she faced in her youth, Edith's been running ever since. With Adam she's found a reason to stop. But will her past let her?
