I love a book that just grabs me in the first chapter and holds on to the end. This book Did that for me. This is my first book by Karen White. I will be reading more. I loved it.

This book was about how tragedy in the past hold on to us and can prevent us from living in today. The lesson being that living your life and finding happiness does not mean that you forget that loss. A useful reminder. The story is told in two voices - Aimee who encounters many losses in the her life yet manages to move on and still find happiness. Julie who is so traumatized by a tragic loss in her childhood that she is unable to move on. That loss dominates the majority of her life and prevents her for a long time from allowing herself to find happiness.

The book also unexpectedly turned out to be a mystery. One tragedy in the past that remained unresolved and slowly emerges throughout the book.

I would have given the book 5 stars except for a couple of twists and turns at the end which I felt were unnecessary.

This is the Karen White I remember and love. A fast, engaging read with a likable cast characters. I loved Aimee's flashbacks and Julie's present day narration. A definite page-turner although the "mystery" was a bit obvious IMO. Still, very enjoyable! Now I remember why White is one of my favorite chick-fiction authors.
