M. C. Beamon¿s debut novel is truly a page-turner! This book was highly recommended by a book club member and I was not disappointed. Beamon¿s description through David¿s quest to find the truth vividly takes us back in time to another place. The suspense behind finding the truth (i.e. David¿s quest leads to a shocking awakening hidden behind family secrets, lies, cover-up, and deception) is intense¿so much so, it keeps you reading till the end. I finished this novel in two nights¿interrupted only because I had to go to work. Hats off to Ms. Beamon for a great debut novel. I¿m looking forward to reading other works from her.
If you like the lawyer series by David E. Kelly you will really enjoy this book. It's well written, and keeps you wondering what would be revealed next. It's a great, worthwhile read!
