On a damp, breezy morning in the spring of 2018, we meet Carol Davis- a charismatic hospice patient. She has a confession to make. That confession leads to a desperate plea, as she wants to redeem herself before time runs out. There is help, but it comes with unwelcome consequences. It becomes apparent that there is more behind the confession… and more to Carol.?Events unfold through the perspectives of a few other women in her life: Lauren, Jamie and Denise. Unbeknownst to those three, they suffer from similar invisible wounds. They also share a conviction that their ability to mend themselves depends on how well they cater to a woman they think they know.
