My wife has no memory of me.
Then again, Grace isn’t my real wife. I don’t know much about her – where she’s from, how she ended up in Hope Creek, why she has strange marks on her wrists and how she survived The Icebreaker that wiped out a good portion of humanity.
What I do know is that she’s one of the handful of remaining fertile women left and so the Council wants me to have a baby with her.
What I do know is that I’m pretending to be her husband so she doesn’t run off and spill the town’s secrets to the world.
What I do know is that she has the most mesmerizing blue eyes that my heart can’t escape from.
And I could go on living this lie but the truth has a way of catching up just as the most perfect of worlds can end up crumbling.
And now we both have to face the facts – she with the fact that she’s been living in a devastated world and sleeping with a stranger.
And I with the fact that I’m in love with a woman who’s engaged to my brother.
