“A wonderful novel, impeccably written and thoroughly engrossing.” The New York Times Book Review
“Where do love, honesty, and responsibility intersect? . . . A provocative rumination on family and what it means to do the right thing.” Glamour
“Funny, suspenseful, and sometimes creepy.” Los Angeles Times
“One of the most surprising thrillers of the year--completely offbeat, unexpected, and unique. Margot Livesey is right up there in the realm of P. D. James.” Newsday
“A story of many kinds of love, indifference, secrecy, and blind selfishness that drives as fiercely to its surprising conclusion as any thriller.” Rosellen Brown

Very interesting and well written character study. The novel is engaging to the very end.
Great book full of emotions confusing,learning to love not wanting to let go sorrow and loss it has alittle of everything... at first seems like those indie flicks where nothing happens but then it gets intriguing I liked these book one of those books you don't forget.
