In this mesmerizing drama, one life-altering event catapults a family into turmoil, revealing secrets that may leave them fractured forever...or bind them together tighter than ever before.
From the outside, the Davenports look like any other family living a completely ordinary life - until that devastating day when five-year-old Jonah is killed, and the family is torn apart. As the fury of guilt engulfs them, the Davenports slowly start to unravel, one by one.
Losing her son forces Rachel to withdraw into a frayed, fuzzy reality. Her husband, Sam, tries to remain stoic, but he's consumed by regret with the choices he's made. Eden mourns her brother, while desperately fighting to regain a sense of normalcy. And Aunt Ruth, Rachel's sister, works too hard to care for the family, even as her own personal issues haunt her.
Told from multiple points of view - including Jonah's - the family struggles to cope with unthinkable loss. But as they face their own dark secrets about that terrible day, they have a choice: to be swallowed up in sadness forever, or begin the raw, arduous ascent back to living.
And perfect narration!
I was getting a bit tired of my usual mystery books which are sometimes quite dark. This book was a wonderful change. Loved every minute of it!

JUST fantastic!!! I will be reading again and again. The writer was brilliant telling from so many roles at once with no confusion. I really really loved it!
Tried to make sense of it for six chapters. Such misery. I don't need this. Had to rate it but I would not have given it any stars.
