In the aftermath of a massive Los Angeles earthquake, the perfect existence Teal Morgan-Adams has built begins to crumble. Teal’s daughter, Maiya, is determined to learn the identity of her biological father, despite the loving devotion of her stepdad, River Adams. But that’s a secret Teal hoped would remain buried forever. She has never shared the truth with anyone . . . not her family, not River, not even Maiya’s father.

As Maiya’s rebellion escalates, Teal receives tragic news from her sister and decides to take Maiya home to Cedar Pointe, Oregon, a place she’s avoided most of her adult life. But will her already-strained marriage survive the distance and the secrets she’ll be forced to face there? And can Teal erase the lies that echo in her heart?
My take on this book:
Teal Morgan-Adams is married to River Adams, and has a daughter named Maiya. They have been living in southern California long enough to know how to handle an earthquake, but when an earthquake strikes while Teal is on the freeway something seems different, which has people examining their lives, especially Maiya. She is interested in finding out who her biological father is. Thing is her questions are bringing up a past that Teal would rather stay buried. Will the truth rock the Adam's family foundation, or will it make them stronger?

This book really opens with a bang. The main character Teal finds herself in the midst of an earthquake,which really pulled me in. Teal finds herself reflecting upon her life and a secret from her past. There are also the ups and downs of being a mother to a fifteen year old girl who is testing her boundaries. I could easily understand the longings of wanting a relationship with a father. A story with memorable characters and the reminder that forgiveness is the catalyst to finding peace within.
rating 4/5
