Still looking for the title of a book about a son accused of I believe murder.  The catalyst is that the mother looks inside herself and wonders if she was somehow the cause of what her son has done by her relationship with him growing up.  Being to protective and smothering, etc...

It is not We need to talk about Kevin.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

No that is not it either, but thank you for your input.  This sounds like a good book though!

How 'bout Before and After by Rosellen Brown? Loved it! (and I think it was made into a movie....maybe?)

I found it!  The title is Early Leaving.  Unfortunately it has not been posted as yet, but I now have it on my wish list.

Thanks
