When Deborah Monroe's car hits and kills a man on a deserted road on a dark and rainy night, questions of who is to blame muddy the already complicated life of a woman who is newly divorced and struggling with emotions that are rampant in a house with two vulnerable children. Deborah's daughter, 16-year old, Grace, was behind the wheel but, desperate to protect her daughter, Deborah covers for her and takes responsibility for the death of the man. But, when it seems that the victim may or may not have been suicidal, issues of guilt and responsibility, truth and honesty, are all brought into sharp focus. Barbara Delinsky is the master of the issue. Perfect for all fans of Jodi Picoult, this novel will make you question where the lines of right and wrong can be drawn.Read Less

This book was good enough that I finished it til the end, but there was something missing. Like one of the other reviewers mentioned, I wish the book had stayed more focused on the girl and her mom. It started to drift off a little in places...If you like reading about family dynamics, then give this one a go. Otherwise don't bother. I much prefer thriller and suspense anyway!

If you like Jodi Picoult
If you like Jodi Picoult - this book is very similar to her work.
The book was quick and makes you think about what YOU would do for your child, if you had the option. Would you take the blame for something with legal implications to protect your daughter from a life of potential future issues, wrong-turns and judgement? Think about it.
The mother / dead-guy's brother relationship was just weird... I mean, where did that come from????

Good book- first I'd read by this author. Kept my interest and didn't take long to read.
