Overview

Dos jóvenes madres muy distintas ven unidos sus destinos tras un acccidente.

La vida de Valerie Anderson da un vuelco cuando su hijo Charlie, que jamás ha conocido a su padre, sufre severas quemaduras faciales en un incendio. El niño se recupera rápidamente gracias a la pericia del cirujano Nick Russo y la gratitud de Valerie hacia el médico pronto se convierte en amor.
Nick también se siente fascinado por ella, pues ve en esta mujer valiente todo lo que no ve en su esposa Tessa, un ama de casa que abandonó su carrera profesional para cuidar del hogar y parece haber olvidado todos sus proyectos de juventud.
Tessa, por su parte, tendrá que decidir si se esfuerza por mantener el estado de las cosas o si aprovecha la situación para dar un cambio radical a su vida, recuperando un espíritu luchador que ha quedado arrinconado.

Emily Giffin nos regala una historia luminosa sobre dos mujeres atrapadas en situaciones que las empujan a sus límites: las dos que tendrán que replantearse todo en lo que habían creído hasta entonces; las dos terminarán descubriendo qué es lo realmente importante en la vida.

«Inteligente, creíble y auténtica: sabe captar la esencia de la amistad y el amor en toda su complejidad.» San Francisco Chronicle

Two very different young mothers are united, their destinies intertwined, after an acccident.
 
Tessa Russo is the mother of two children and is married to a renowned pediatric surgeon, Nick. Despite having deep reservations, Tessa has finally chosen to leave her career to focus on her family and the pursuit of domestic happiness. From the outside, it appears she is destined to live a charmed life.
Valerie Anderson is an attorney and single mother of a six year old boy, Charlie, who has never known his father. After too many disappointments, Valerie has already forgotten how to love, or how to even be a friend, and believes that it is always safer not to have too many expectations in life.  Although both women live in the same neighborhood in  Boston, the truth is that they have very little in common, beyond a unconditional love for their children. But one night, a tragic accident causes the unimaginable: in an unfortunate fire, Charlie suffers serious facial burns. The relationship of empathy between Nick and Charlie ends including his mother, and what begins as a supportive relationship leads to a romance between Nick and Valerie. The feisty model representing Valerie is for Nick the opposite of what has become Tessa, who in turn will have to decide whether to keep fighting for the status quo or change.

With this novel, very well written from two points that alternate, Emily Giffin gives us a luminous story about two good people caught in situations that push them to their limits: the two will have to undergo a series of tests that could never have imagined, the two will have to rethink everything they believed in until then, the two will finally discover what is really important in life.
