Annabelle, a little girl she used to babysit, is drowning. Lark and Alec both dive in. But Alec hits his head on a rock in the water. Alec and Annabelle are drowning. And Lark can save only one of them. Lark chooses, and in that moment her world splits into two distinct lives. She must live with the consequences of both choices.
