Ready for a fresh start, Allison Parker moves back to her hometown in the suburbs of New York. While she’d once savored the dynamic pace of city life, sadly, it lost its allure after her husband’s untimely death. Now, ready to focus on her art career accompanied by her ten-year-old son, Logan, Allison doesn’t anticipate that her past will resurface. When the wife of her husband’s best friend from summer camp takes her under her wing, things begin to spin out of control.
At one time, Charlotte Crane thought she had it all—a devoted husband, a beautiful little girl, and enough financial security to never have to worry. But behind her “perfect” facade lie a strained marriage and a fractured relationship with her sister. When “new girl” Allison arrives in Wincourt, Charlotte welcomes the chance to build a friendship. Before long, Charlotte begins to see her life through Allison’s eyes, and the cracks in her seemingly flawless existence become impossible to ignore.
As Allison heals from the loss of her husband—even wondering if she might be ready to date again—Charlotte feels more distant from her loved ones than ever before. The emerging friendship between the two women appears to be just the antidote both of them so desperately need...until everything falls apart.
This is such an amazing book by Emily Liebert. I didn't want to put it down, but at the same time I didn't want it to end. I finished it in less than 24 hours! This is a wonderful story about friendship, relationships, family and of course struggles we might face in life. I grew to love the two main characters, Charlotte and Allison. I was nervous reading this because I was waiting to see what happened between the two of them...the whole "When We Fall" part. But Emily did a great job and didn't disappoint. I don't want to give any spoilers so go grab a copy and enjoy this awesome read!!

She was right.
