Summary

I look at my daughter. My darling girl. I remember her tiny hand in mine, her first smile. I recall her tears when she’d tumble over, healed instantly with a Band-Aid and a little kiss. I have to keep her safe. Even if it means someone else gets hurt....

In the pretty, privileged college town of Milford, New Hampshire, everyone is friendly, and everything is safe. And on this cold autumn day, as red and yellow leaves begin to fall from the trees, and everyone wraps up for the first time, it would be easy to believe nothing bad could ever happen here.

Until a screech of tires is heard, a thud, a child’s scream. The crash that sees Jenna’s six-year-old daughter, Amy Rose, being hit by a car driven by 17-year-old Maddie.

Maddie’s mother, Ellen, a college professor with a warm, approachable reputation, insists it must have been an accident. Her daughter is always safe on the road - and she’s vulnerable herself.

But as Amy Rose lies unconscious in hospital, the town begins to take sides. With Ellen, who just wants to defend her daughter. Or with Jenna, a single mother with a past, whose child hovers between life and death...

The truth is that both mothers have secrets they’re trying to keep. And with Amy Rose’s life hanging in the balance, one of them will stop at nothing to protect the person she loves - her daughter.

Perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult, Jojo Moyes, and Diane Chamberlain.

Gripping

Loved the way each chapter almost ended on a cliffhanger. It was gripping and I thoroughly recommend it.

Starts slow — but don’t give up!! Excellent.

My husband and I listened to this together. We almost stopped because Ellen was such a privileged helicopter mom. So glad we stayed with it. The story was amazing. Lots of twists and turns. The characters became so real.

The narrator was so good. We could picture each character and the emotions they were feeling.

This book would make a great book club discussion.

She has a Jodi Picoult feel. I wanted to keep listening to find out what happens next.

Loved It

Excellent writing. Hated some of the characters and hope there are not people really this shallow. That comes from great writing..feeling something about the characters. Enjoyed the story and performance.
