Today is my birthday. I am 58 years old. I am not shy about my age, because I feel like I have earned the right to claim every one of those years. I am married to a scientist called Robert Carlton, and I have two grown kids, four grown step-kids, six grandkids (so far), a dog, three cats (one of whom is 23 years old) and as many gardens as it is possible to cram into one acre. The rose at the top of this page is from one of them. My latest professsion, besides taking care of all of the above, is Novelist. I’ve recently finished my second book, which took me six years to complete, but my excuse is that it is really three books.I left the pharmaceutical industry about ten years ago and decided to use my severence to finance a writing sabbatical and try my hand at fiction. Now I’m hooked. I haven’t decided yet on the subject of my next book. I have a couple of ideas rattling around in the back of my head though.

I enjoyed this book. I liked the format of 3 different outcomes to an accident. I liked the way most of the characters were developed though not necessarily their personalities. (see the brother and mother.) Each story seemed well thought out. I think this writer will be one to watch over time. She will only get better. There were some problems with this book, however. I noticed some POV problems as well as some problems with dialogue. Some of the teen language especially rang false. I did find the family dynamics interesting, though. Each family has their problem people and these characters are no exception. It was fun to watch what happened with each version of the story. I recommend it.

I received this book in exchange for a review. This was a very interesting premise. In all three novels, the characters are the same. The victim is different in the three. The characters are well drawn and believable. I loved the first and the third novel. The second was much darker. Ms. Carleton does a very good job exploring the reactions of people to a trauma and how they deal with it. I enjoyed the book.
