Valerie Anderson is an attorney and single mother to six-year-old Charlie—a boy who has never known his father. After too many disappointments, she has given up on romance—and even, to some degree, friendships—believing that it is always safer not to expect too much.
Although both women live in the same Boston suburb, the two have relatively little in common aside from a fierce love for their children. But one night, a tragic accident causes their lives to converge in ways no one could have imagined.
In alternating, pitch-perfect points of view, Emily Giffin creates a moving, luminous story of good people caught in untenable circumstances. Each being tested in ways they never thought possible. Each questioning everything they once believed. And each ultimately discovering what truly matters most.”Brianna's review: Yet another Emily Giffin book that I love. She only has 5 books, and I can't say a bad thing about any of them. Love and feel for both characters, as the entire book is written in two different characters views. I want one thing to happen, and yet want something totally different to happen the entire time. It was so hard to put down, and I was thinking about the book when I wasn't reading it, which to me is a good sign that I loved the book. Happy with the ending, and she has wonderful choice of wording throughout. Once again, I love Emily Giffin and her writing. Can't wait till I hear about another one of her books!
