About The Book

2011 Audie Award Finalist for Fiction

Beloved blockbuster storyteller Anna Quindlen’s powerhouse new novel, her first since the #1 bestseller Rise and Shine , confirms her status as an incomparably accurate and compassionate observer of families and the tragedies they face.

This moving, suspenseful, and surprising new novel by beloved author Anna Quindlen is about a suburban family and the unintended, explosive consequences of what seem like small, casual actions. Quindlen returns to the subject of family, and family in turmoil, a subject she’s explored with great success in all of her previous novels thanks to her insightful, compassionate understanding of the intricacies of human relationships.
