Across the Water (Paperback)
Secrets can pull you under...
In remote Oyster Creek, a beautiful young mother and her little baby have gone missing. But it was no secret that Delilah Waters never wanted children. She wasn't coping with the baby, and everyone believes she leapt to her death, taking her child with her. Everyone except Liz Dawson.
Wrestling with her own demons, Liz risks everything to uncover a truth that becomes more complex with every twist. Of all people, Liz knows that just because someone is a reluctant mother, it doesn't mean they don't love their child. And it doesn't mean they're capable of murder... does it?
The Woman in the Window meets The Hand that Rocked the Cradle, Across the Water explores the darker side of motherhood, the pressure to conform, and how women's choices shape their fate.
