But when a secret from their past becomes a secret in their present, a devastating tragedy threatens to tear apart a relationship that they’ve both always believed was bulletproof. Left to pick up the broken pieces by herself, Emma learns that to survive the aftermath, all she has to do is drown the resulting anguish. The only problem is that her coping mechanism might cost her everything. But even if it does, all she wants back is her best friend.
Lies That Bind: Emma’s Story helps shed light on the all-too-common occurrence of abuse by someone familiar, and the PTSD that follows trauma.
