For most, December is a month marked by celebration and joy. For Tara Sellers Willoughby, December has always meant dread and grief. From outside of her elite, small-town Georgia circle, it would seem that Tara lives in an exquisitely-packaged world.MoreFor most, December is a month marked by celebration and joy. For Tara Sellers Willoughby, December has always meant dread and grief. From outside of her elite, small-town Georgia circle, it would seem that Tara lives in an exquisitely-packaged world. She has a beautiful body, a handsome and affluent husband, a successful career, and the largest house in the wealthiest neighborhood east of the Chattahoochee River. Inside, however, Tara is profoundly paralyzed by denial and struggles to reconcile conflict from past Decembers.Although a decade has passed since Tara’s parents were killed, she is still haunted by their tragic death. In an attempt to understand her grief and honor her beloved father’s memory, she pours herself into her work as a bereavement counselor and Alzheimer’s advocate. Tara ventures to Chicago to attend a conference to learn about art therapy for people with dementia.When a remarkable young stranger saves her from a looming Chicago rainstorm, Tara doesnt know that she will also need saving from the imminent collision of infidelity, deception, and decades-old secrets she unwittingly discovers hidden inside an illusive box.No matter how devastating the Decembers of her journey have been, Tara refuses to quit pushing forward, drawing from within an unexplainable tenacity for picking up the pieces and making the most of the month’s wreckage.
