For the last six years, Simon has struggled to keep his identity a secret along with a past that, so far, has stayed right where it belongs. Beaten within an inch of his life, he left everything behind when he fled to Washington. Including his family. So when the shrill ringing of his phone wakes him in the middle of the night, the last person he expects to hear on the other end of the line is his baby sister.
After living together for over five years, David figures there isn't much more to learn about Simon Taverdy. That is, until he overhears Simon talking on the phone.

With only four weeks left until Christmas, going home for the holidays takes on new meaning, especially when it involves the cops and an abusive ex who's still on the run. Can Simon and David survive the fallout of Simon's past, or will he bolt again to the middle of Nowhere?
