A new life. An old secret. Which one would you keep?
Stolen as a child from her large and loving family, and on the run with her mom for more than ten years, Callie has only the barest idea of what normal life might be like. She's never had a home, never gone to school, and has gotten most of her meals from laundromat vending machines. Her dreams are haunted by memories she'd like to forget completely. But when Callie's mom is finally arrested for kidnapping her, and Callie's real dad whisks her back to what would have been her life, in a small town in Florida, Callie must find a way to leave the past behind. She must learn to be part of a family. And she must believe that love—even with someone who seems an improbable choice—is more than just a possibility.
Since Trish posts snippets of her WIPs on tumblr, I've been anticipating this release before the book deal was signed and it was known as All That Was Lost.
I remember reading something interesting about the male character in this book. The interesting thing being that Trish couldn't exactly reveal his name, but that it was either Alex or Connor and that there isn't a love triangle in the book. I'm curious to find out what that means plus how Callie deals with going to school for the first time, a father she doesn't know, the complexity of her relationship with her mother and what memories haunts her.
You can check out the playlist for this and Trish's other books here. My favourite on the playlist for Where the Stars Still Shine is Hazy by Rosi Golan featuring William Fitzsimmons.
