This was not my favorite Anita Shreve book. It was a story of a life. Nothing super big or exciting happens. It's a good story, but nothing to really hold my attention. I'm grateful for PBS so I can get something new!

I have been a Shreve fan for many years and hers are the only new hardcovers I buy as soon as they come out. But after reading this book and her last few that practice will stop. I didn't enjoy this book at all. Boring main character, no interesting story. I just didn't like it. Unfortunately I have felt that way about the last few books she has written.

I thought this was a very good book. The story was sad at times but true to life, I think. Anita Shreve showed the issues the characters were dealing with in a way that didn't make it mundane and tiresome. It just made you feel for them and find ways to relate it to your own life experiences. Very good book.

I literally ran through this book. Very compelling read! The story is so true to life...graphic at times. It's the story of a (now single) dad, who works as an EMT and his teenage daughter. She is acting out as a result of learning about her mother who abandoned them when the girl was two. A terrible accident will bring them all back together.
