Tessa Russo is the mother of two young children and the wife of a renowned paediatric surgeon. Despite her own mother's warnings, Tessa has recently given up her career to focus on her family and the pursuit of domestic happiness. From the outside, she seems destined to live a charmed life.
Valerie Anderson is an attorney and single mother to six-year-old Charlie – a boy who has never known his father. After too many disappointments, she has given up on romance – and even to some degree, friendships – believing that it is always safer not to expect too much.
Although both women live in the same Boston suburb, the two have relatively little in common aside from a fierce love for their children. But one night, a tragic accident causes their lives to converge in ways no one could have imagined.

I listen to about 1 audio book a week and I did make it through this book ok, but it did drag on for a very long time. I never buy Abridged versions, but maybe I would have enjoyed this more if it were half the length. I was VERY pleasantly suprised at how wonderful Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City) is as a Narrator! More please!!!!
This is a fantastic story, free from the usual cliches that accompany such tales. Brilliant narration by Cyntia Nixon. Highly recommended!
