Description:
When Nell's father makes a deathbed declaration that hints at a long-held secret, it reignites feelings of isolation that have plagued her for years. Her suspicions about the family's past only deepen when her mother, Annie, who is losing her memories to dementia, starts making cryptic comments of her own. Thirty-five years earlier, Annie's life was upended by a series of traumas-one shock after another that she buried deep in her heart. The decisions she made at the time were motivated by love, but she knew even then that nobody could ever understand - let alone forgive - what she did. As the two women's stories unravel, a generation apart, Nell finally discovers the devastating truth about her mother's past, and her own. In this beautifully observed and emotionally powerful story of identity, memory and the nature of family, Hannah Beckerman asks: To what lengths would you go to protect the ones you love?

Reviews
When I started reading this book and discovered it was one that went from the past to the present on alternate chapters I nearly gave up reading it as it annoyed me. However I carried on reading. The storyline is complicated and some of what happened I could see coming. The characters were strong and it was the sort of book I kept reading at every opportunity until finished. Like other reviewers I felt the ending did not finished the story, perhaps there will be a sequel?
