On the eve of their 40th wedding anniversary, the Seagraves are among the most envied couples in their community, and still deeply in love - until the night Lydia Seagrave picks up a gun and shoots her husband.
Confronting a tangle of family lies in the wake of this shocking tragedy are the three Seagrave children: Daphne, in love with the D.A. who's prosecuting her mother; Alex, determined to vindicate her father; and Kitty, just as determined to vindicate her mother.
As the devastated sisters come together to unravel the truth about their family, they must also face the lies and betrayals in which they've unknowingly taken part. They must rebuild from their shattered illusions a life that is honest - even at the risk of pain.

This book sounded so promising - yet what a disappointment!! The author is so sappy - characters like Johnny and Kitty utter things like "Oh, thank goodness you've come!" and "Whatever happened to Daddy?" and other outdated, nonsensical remarks. Just imagine June murdering Ward Cleaver - what should have been a gritty, nuanced book just sounds ridiculous penned by this author. Don't get me started about the love scenes - "she wept, and he held her gently...". Good grief! Plus the narrator should be reading happy children's books. Just a really bad listen all around.
