Publisher's Summary

Aria is no stranger to tragedy. Fifteen years ago, a family outing took the lives of her father and baby sister, leaving remaining members of this fractured family struggling with their own guilt - real and imagined.

At 25, Aria believes she can reinvent herself through her planned marriage with all its promise of a family of her own. Her infertility changes her life as swiftly and irrevocably as the urban landscape around her.

With prose that is both eloquent and unflinching, Jones charts the emotional journey of her characters as they explore the painful territory of truth and the healing landscape of forgiveness.

Wow

Any additional comments?

Wow. Another good book by Tayari Jones. Her ability to create characters that are believable and explore the dynamics of problems that are experienced by today's women makes me hope she continues to write for many, many years.

Good Book, narrator boring

Story was pretty good the narrator was monotone and boring. Would have enjoyed more if there was a different narrator.
