Summary
Nina Browning is living the good life after marrying into Nashville's elite. More recently, her husband made a fortune selling his tech business and their adored son has been accepted to Princeton. Yet sometimes the middle-class small-town girl in Nina wonders if she's strayed from the person she once was. Tom Volpe is a single dad working multiple jobs while struggling to raise his headstrong daughter, Lyla. His road has been lonely, long and hard, but he finally starts to relax after Lyla earns a scholarship to Windsor Academy, Nashville's most prestigious private school. Amid so much wealth and privilege, Lyla doesn't always fit in, and her overprotective father doesn't help, but in most ways, she's a typical teenage girl, happy and thriving. Then, one photograph, snapped in a drunken moment at a party, changes everything. As the image spreads like wildfire, the Windsor community is instantly polarised, buzzing with controversy and assigning blame. At the heart of the lies and scandal, Tom, Nina and Lyla are forced together, all questioning their closest relationships, asking themselves who they really are and searching for the courage to live a life of true meaning
Summary
When her golden-boy son posts a controversial photograph of a scholarship student online, triggering a local scandal, a wife and mother finds herself sympathizing more with the girl's family than her own
