You can always run away from home. You can't always go back. Tam is obsessed with the idea of living on her own with no contact with her husband, her sister, her friends—if only for a few months. Mostly she wants to see if she can do it. Yes, her husband will be angry at first, but she’s written him a letter explaining it all. He’ll get it. She hopes. But when the letter lands in the hands of the police after a tragic accident, Tam’s disappearance takes on new significance and everything changes. What she considered a lark exposes secrets about people she trusted and the life she returns to is dramatically different from the one she left. Can she really go back?
