Does one simple act of kindness have the power to completely turn someone's life around? It's been a year since Hannah Ainsley lost her husband and parents - her whole family - in a car crash on Christmas morning. Despite her overwhelming loss, she's worked hard to pull the pieces of her life together with the help of a group of dear, loyal friends. But while Hannah is beginning to become excited about the future again, she's concerned that her best friend, talented artist Sam, is facing a crisis of her own. It's now Hannah's turn to be Sam's rock - can she save Sam's dreams from unravelling? When Hannah returns to work after her holidays, she can't settle. She's loved her job for a decade, and it's been her lifeline during her grief. But something's changed. She's changed. For all this time she's avoided knowing the details of the accident or investigation - what would be the point, she'd thought, when nothing will bring her loved ones back? But after a chance meeting, it's all there in front of her - and, like ripples in a pond, it extends beyond her own experiences. Could knowing be the key to her recovery? Could her involvement be the key to someone else's?
