Summary

Ben is the sole survivor of a crime that claims his mother and countless others. He’s just six years old, and already he must find a new place for himself in the world.  

Lucy, the doctor who tends to Ben, is grappling with a personal upheaval of her own. She feels a profound connection to the little boy who has lived through the unthinkable. Will recovering his memory heal him or damage him further? 

Clare has long believed that the lifetime of secrets she’s been keeping don’t matter to anyone anymore, until an unexpected encounter prompts her to tell her story. As they each struggle to confront the events that have defined their lives, something stronger than fate is working to bring them together.

A joy

I was utterly absorbed in the complex plot.
The narration only added to the harm of this remarkable book. Will I ever find another so wonderful??

Wanted to start over again as soon as I finished!

Absolutely stunning and so enjoyable. I can't remember the last time a book made me sob (in the best way possible). Deeply moving and worth multiple listens!
