Lucy

Through the eyes of everyone, the Fieldings are a perfect, happy family. Even Constance Fielding, the younger of the two girls, had fallen for the illusion. That is until her seemingly perfect life is thrown out the window when she wakes up on Christmas morning to find her sister Lucy’s lifeless body.

Convinced that she’s the cause for her sister’s death and her family falling apart, Connie blames God for not intervening and saving her sister. As her life spirals downwards, she begins to follow in her sisters footsteps by pushing away her friends and wanting nothing to do with her family. Maybe Lucy had it right all along.

Meanwhile, Jessa Miller who lives a horrible, lonely life knows who’s fault it was for Lucy’s suicide. Her own. Jessa can’t seem to forgive herself and wonders if forgiveness is even an option after a mistake as big as her own. Jessa runs into Connie at school and attempts to befriend the girl as a way of redemption from her guilt. She tries to make things right by helping Connie make it through this painful time in her life but it doesn’t change the fact that someone died because of her.

Hiding her secret from Connie, she watches her spiral downwards, into a hopeless despair. Will both girls find hope before it’s too late?

But, Finley also has a secret. Finley McCarthy’s most recent mistake is her two year old daughter. Finley gave birth at 15 and loves her baby dearly.
