Life never charts a straight course ...

After suffering too many tragedies and one enormous betrayal, Reuben and Maggie thought they could put their complicated history behind them in America. But when the past comes to call, they know that nothing will ever be simple again. As secrets are revealed and old wounds opened, one all encompassing question may be their downfall: Which path do you take when the person you are isn’t who you were supposed to be?

The second part of the Across Oceans story, Twisted River examines the fine line between what makes us and what breaks us, and the happiness we all must find in the most unexpected of places.
