About the Book

Things We Once Held Dear

The foundations of Neil Sadler's small-town life had been rocked by a suspicious death. Years later, as he struggles to recover from a more recent loss, memories surrounding that disturbing ordeal have taken hold of his mind and won't let go.

Intent on repairing his shattered world, Neil reconnects with his friend Mary Beeken. Their once-close relationship hadn’t been strong enough to survive the tragedy that overtook Mary’s family --- yet what drove them apart years ago now seems to be drawing them back together.

The mystery that shrouds the fateful event stretches back over two decades --- and remains unsolved. To bring closure will mean facing old truths --- hard truths --- and discovering some new ones. For Neil, the future is as much in the balance as the past.
