This is such a compelling novel that digs deep into the obstructions and barriers created when a family member goes to extremes to protect the reputation of her family. The dialog will make you gasp at the audacity of her and leave you wondering if the truth will ever come out. Friendships are destroyed. Trust is broken. Lies are covered and buried until the dam bursts and destroys the illusion of perfection procured by a dominant, overbearing mother.
Joy Fielding’s novels are gripping and tightly woven into stories that grab ahold and do not let go until the very end.
