Once upon a time, Lily had the perfect life—loving parents and grandparents, a best friend, and a boy she thought loved her—until an explosion and a disastrous decision blew it all away.

Seventeen years later, her children are her life and she will do anything to protect them and her paraplegic grandmother. Shrinking their world into a tiny space, she hides her bruises and injuries while living in terror of the day her estranged husband’s brutality goes too far. Lily will keep them safe—even if it kills her.

When Lily turned away from him, Alejandro left town, vowing never to return. Recreating himself, he could ignore his broken heart and make a life outside his father’s shadow, until a family emergency pulled him home again. Taking a job as the school music teacher, he knew he’d eventually come across her child, but he was ill-prepared for the other five siblings, or becoming so quickly attached. When he encounters Lily, she only sees him as her children’s teacher.

If Lily can survive her husband’s viciousness, as Alex searches for answers to questions he can’t ask, will his love be enough to save Lily and her family? Or destroy them?
