4.5 Stars When Claire's daughter, Julia, commits suicide, she is consumed with unimaginable grief. Searching for answers, she finds letters hidden under her daughter's bed in an old shoe box. At first, Claire's heart is eased as she discovers that Julia was happy, she loved being a college student... and that she was in love. But the tone of the letters slowly change and Claire feels something else was going on with her daughter .. something dark and secretive. Claire questions everything she thought she knew about her daughter. This is probably the most emotional book I've read in a really long time. I cried along with Claire as she grieved ... I laughed with Claire when she remembered fun times ... I felt her pain when a secret was revealed. This was well written, gripping, emotional ... I highly recommend this one. Just remember to keep a box of tissues handy. Many thanks to the author / Bookouture / Netgalley for this intensely reading. Read and reviewed voluntarily, opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

The story of a family in the aftermath of a horrific event. Nicole Trope has written a very emotional story with enough skill to make it readable while still expressing the emotions the characters would show. The topics are sensitive but timely while the daughter's letters reveal the pain she was trying to escape. Very much a good book that will leave you thinking.

Wow! Wow! Wow! My sweet darling Nicole, you have outdone yourself! This book is ahhmazing! From the first chapter, I was swept up by the sadness of the story. You sucked me in with grief so profound I could feel it as I turned the pages. You have portrayed the horrific nature of suicide in a way that feels so real and painful. And the beauty of a budding love relationship through the found letters! How beautiful and romantic it started and how horrific it all ended. About 70% in, I figured out whodunit but geesh I never expected it and it sucker punched me in the gut. I felt the anger of the mother as I too started to hate this disgusting abusive man. The last fourth of the book was totally unexpected and so well developed! This book had me reeling in every direction and I literally couldn’t put it down! I can’t remember when a book last shook my every emotion but you did it! I mean, seriously, how did you come up with this story- it was SO damn good! Thank you for writing, for bringing emotion into the life of your reader and for tackling a very sensitive subject in the most graceful of ways! WOW! I highly recommend!

This book was well done and full of flawed but wonderful characters. I found the subject matter so relatable to many areas- marriage, trying to raise adult children , spousal abuse, suicide and many other issues. Nicole Trope does an admirable job of writing about tragic events and making them so important and real that I was reading late into the night. A heartbreaking and illuminating story of love, loss and redemption, with a twist and an ending that leaves you aghast. Nicole Trope is a gifted author and she paints authentic and moving portraits of motherhood and marriage, revealing all the heartaches, triumphs and mysteries with grace and style. This book had such a well-constructed plot that was handled in a sympathetic manner by a writer who is very skilled. This was a agonizing premise, with fabulously written characters. Family life is complicated, especially parenting teenagers and older children. There were several family events that kept me reading and the suspense was tremendous. A moving and emotionally charged novel, I would often find myself with tears in my eyes. With remarkably fleshed out characters, one cannot help but feel for each of them. In the end, Ms. Trope artfully accomplishes a delicate balance of forgiveness, reconciliation and hope for the future. Another winner from a new favorite author. Don't miss the pure satisfaction of this book.
