At twenty-five, kindergarten teacher Priya must accept the loss of her parents in a plane crash. Her grief plunges her into an eating disorder. While her friends recognize that she is crying out for help, Priya denies it all as she strives to make peace with Renita, her father’s sister — a woman who appears chronically depressed and, unbeknownst to Priya, harbours a disturbing family secret. While Priya battles her inner demons, she finds herself choosing between two men: Trent Perelli, the handsome performing arts instructor she meets through a friend, and Gabe, compassionate and empowering—but with a past that causes the very mention of his name to rankle the nerves of Priya’s maternal grandparents. Priya must find the strength to overcome the ravages of anorexia and the poisonous role that family secrets can play on more than one generation, as well as take bold steps to re-invent her life.





Tara Nanayakkara was born in Sri Lanka and immigrated to Canada with her family when she was three. She is the author of two novels, To Wish Upon A Rainbow (1989) and Picture Perfect (2007).
