Summary

Growing up abandoned by her father and raised by a single mother, Celeste was determined to create the perfect family - but even perfect families have secrets. Her days are filled with a rewarding career, a devoted husband, and her 4-year-old daughter. Celeste is the only one who knows the precarious house of cards her family is built upon - until the day her daughter falls critically ill. 

Then her world quickly spirals out of control, her secret threatening to destroy her marriage, family, reputation, and sanity. She’ll go to any lengths to protect her family - take any risk, break any law - anything except tell the truth.

SPOILER ALERT. Sigh...

If you like listening to a woman self flagellate for nearly 7 hours even though she was a VICTIM. She runs, she apologizes, she takes blame she grovels she apologizes. .... and finally she loses anyway. Wow... but the husband spends the entire book hating, seething getting even. For what? I never understood. He walks off into the sunset with her best friend. She loses her child, her dignity and believes she’s a murderer for most of the book. This book made me so angry I was driven to drink. This was certainly a setback for rape survivors and a yeehaw for crappy husbands and betraying best friends. Poor kid. I guess it’s just ok to tell a kid their mom is dead when she has a breakdown. Geeez.... another drink. This time , made it a double.

weak, sad female character *spoilers*

I struggled to listen to this after the first apology for being raped, then the justification, further apologies and how weak and pathetic they made this female character genuinely made me hate this story. It's too bad because it has interesting themes and plot twist but was never fully developed.

Sensitivity warning should be included

There were some odd twists and turns but overall I liked it well enough. It was ultimately predictable but still worth the journey.
