A powerful story of family, ambition, grief and love.
Dutiful daughter. Classical singer. Secret pop songwriter. And suffering from stage fright.
Trust Fund Kid. Indie singer. Immensely gifted performer. And refusing to sing again.
Are they polar opposites? In his grief and fury at the world, Jacob certainly thinks so.
But when Jacob loses everything and Astrid uncovers a shocking family secret, they may need each other to make sense of their lives.
Taryn Bashford is the author of The Harper Effect and currently lives on the Sunshine Coast with her family. She has been an advertising sales rep, a ski chalet chef, a late-night newsreader and the CEO of an internet company, but writing is her true love. Taryn is currently working on her PhD in Creative Writing while tutoring undergraduates and writing more novels. When she's not writing or teaching, she's training for triathlons in the hope they will compensate for the fact she spends ten hours a day sitting at her computer.
