When a car accident kills two teens from opposite sides of the tracks, the aftermath threatens to tear a community apart. On one side, Melanie Johnston--a grieving single mother--is convinced her son will be forgotten. On the other is Andie Phelps, a reserved woman who retreats even further into herself with grief.
Readers' emotions are torn between these two sympathetic characters as each fights her way through grief and pain--sometimes wisely and sometimes with choices that have the power to divide family, church, and even their small, sea-side town.
A riveting selection for any women's book discussion group.
