THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
'Picoult has been incredibly successful in dissecting the pain that family members go through when faced with sensitive and emotional issues . . . a touching read' Daily Express
Fifteen years ago, Daniel Stone's drinking and stealing sent him into a spiral of self-destructiveness which threatened to consume him entirely. Today, life has given him a second chance, and he's reinvented himself as a respected artist, loving husband, and doting father to teenage daughter Trixie, to whom he's never revealed his past.
But when Trixie falls victim to an act of unspeakable violence at the hands of her ex-boyfriend Jason, Daniel's old self resurfaces, stronger than ever.
How far can you go to avenge the ones you love?
Picault's newest bestseller moves to a deeper level of drama in the audiobook version of this tale of heartbreak and revenge. When Trixie Stone tells her father she's been raped by a former boyfriend, her family's lives begin to unravel. Daniel Stone slides easily back to the angry violence of his youth, while his wife, Laura, despairs over both her affair and their daughter's agony. The combination of Laura's study of Dante, Daniel's comic book artistry and Trixie's grief makes for a multilevel, multihued tale. Narrator Monda does a good job of giving unique voice to the characters through the complex narrative, and her voice is easy to listen to throughout. Technical issues, such as breaks in flow where a new recording was patched in, shouldn't detract from the overall power of both Picault's story and Monda's unabridged reading. Simultaneous release with the Atria hardcover. (Reviews, Dec. 5).
