Three women. Three secrets. Three broken lives.

Mariam Navaid Ottimofiore

Can we ever escape our past?

When three women move to Portugal and are thrown together by happenstance, little do they know how dramatically their lives are about to change.

Fatima Khan is a Pakistani writer with a gift for languages, a German husband, a ten-year-old daughter, and a determination to escape her mother’s clutches. Kate Miller is a driven, no-nonsense American diplomat who needs to get her way, even as her marriage flounders. Abena Nyator is a warm and kind-hearted Ghanaian entrepreneur consumed with self-doubt. Each of them looking for a fresh start. Each of them haunted by their past. Each of them burdened by horrendous secrets.

A visit by Fatima’s mother threatens to derail her new life and forces her to face her demons. And when all-consuming guilt gets the better of Kate and Abena, each must make a momentous decision. Set against a sweeping international backdrop—Lisbon, Singapore, Karachi, Houston, Copenhagen, Berlin, Dubai, Brighton, and Accra—the three women are forced to confront an inconvenient truth: the guilty can’t say goodbye.
