One night can alter a life forever…
Emma Greene enjoys living in rural solitude with her husband and five-year-old daughter, Maggie, far away from her college students in Jackson, Virginia. But late one night, with her husband away and her daughter upstairs in bed, some of Emma’s students trespass on her property. The ensuing confrontation changes Emma and Maggie’s life forever.
Nine years later, still plagued by nightmares from that evening, Maggie is living with her father in the same small town, and entering her first year of high school. She develops problems in class when her math teacher, a strange and lonely woman, begins to exhibit an odd interest in her.
In order to let go of the past, Maggie begins to piece together all the truth of what happened that night—and discovers a story of anger, guilt, and redemption.

A good read, entertaining. In a blink of an eye, Emma's life changed forever when she killed a college student in a home invasion. I think after you finish reading this book, the question will linger in your mind, was the killing justified. The college student did not have a weapon, only Emma (a baseball bat) I wrestled with this question and came to the conclusion that Emma should not have killed him. She had already disabled him with the first blow to the knee. I think the killing came as a result of her pent up frustations, her constant quarrels with her husband, the marriage becoming unraveled, dealing with the pressures of her job, and the fact that she already had confrontations with the victim. In other words, she took all these frustations out when she administered the second and third blow to the victims head. She was found justifable in the killing, even though there was never a trial. In the real world she would have been found guilty of manslaughter by a good prosecutor and would now be sitting in prison. I recommend this book you will find it interesting and make your own verdict on the actions that Emma took.

Emma Greene is an English University Professor living in rural Virginia with her husband and five year old daughter, Maggie. Late one evening three drunk students show-up on her property--her husband is out of town. Violence erupts and what young Maggie witnesses changes her whole life.
Years later, the seemingly adjusted Maggie begins waking from the childhood nightmares that once haunted her. When Maggie discoveries why her nightmares returned, she also learns All The Truth of what really happened that fateful night. Now the only question is will Maggie's whole life change too?
There were a number of events that were shocking! I was very much engaged in Maggie's story and wanted to protect her, but then there was a surprise I was flabbergasted by! I just had to read and read until I knew All The Truth
I very much enjoyed this book. There were two other main characters in the book, but I never related or really liked them. My focus was on Maggie, but the other two character viewpoints was very important to learning the whole truth. I am recommending All The Truth especially for those of you who like a suspense!
