Caught up in an illicit affair, Arthur Cubeck and Janet Chamberlin are the silent witnesses to a horrible crime. Unwilling to come forward and ruin their marriages, they keep quiet—an act of selfishness that will haunt them for the rest of their lives. Going their separate ways, unable to face each other after what they’ve done, Arthur and Janet vow to keep this secret.
But years pass, and as Arthur lies on his deathbed, he knows the time has come to confess his greatest sin. As a last request, he convinces Sophie Shepard to come visit him, determined to tell her the truth about her past. But Sophie arrives too late, and now must try to piece together what was so important that a dying man she’d never met would summon her to his side in his final moments. As Sophie uncovers more about her past, the woman who gave her up for adoption, and the role Arthur played in her life, she starts to uncover dark truths.
A story about the destructive forces of guilt—on the heart, on the mind and on the soul—and one sin as the cause of another, Something About Sophie is also about the importance of honesty. And it’s a story about the power of love, and the things people will do to protect it.
