I absolutely loved this novel. The book is not about politics. Campaigns and elections are glossed over. It really is a story of a marriage and a family. You see Alice Lindgren live with the choices and compromises she had made. Her marriage really required her to choose one world over another and the book is a story of how she lived with those choices. It is a fictionalized account of Laura Bush's life with illusions here and there although I didn't find that very important or specially convincing. What was captivating was the story of a couple who made each other happier than anyone else had ever mad them, but seemed wrong for each other in temperament and beliefs. I've always wondered how people make those relationships work and this is one authors version of how it could happen. There is an abortion subplot and Alice Lindgren is very clearly, and strongly prochoice.

Very interesting book about internship and residency. Makes me glad I chose a field that was not medicine. I got to sleep at night during my early years of training. :-)

From the back cover:
Nine-year-old Emily Anne Toussaint is fatally shot on a Montreal street. A North Carolina teenager disappears from her home, and parts of her skeleton are found hundres of miles away. The shocking deaths propel forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan from north to south, and deep into a shattering investigation inside the bizarre culture of outlaw motorcycle gangs-- where one misstep could bring disaster for herself or someone she loves. Kathy Reichs' New York Times bestseller pulses with cutting-edge scientific know-how--and the narrative power of an award winning crime fiction star.

From the back of the book:
In the bitter cold of a Montreal winter, Tempe Brennan is digging for a corpse buried more than a century ago. But it's a chain of contemporary deaths and disappearances that has seized her attention-- and she alone is ideally placed to make a chilling connection among the semingly unrelated events. At the crime scene, at the morgue, and in the lab, Tempe probes a mystery that sweeps from a dealy Quebec fire to startling discoversies in the Carolinas, and culminates in Montreal with a terrifying showdown-- a nerve-shattering test of her affinities for both science and survival.
