Description


“MILLER WEAVES HER THEMES OF SECRECY, BETRAYAL AND FORGIVENESS INTO A NARRATIVE THAT SHINES.”
Time

“FASCINATING . . . Despite having a loving husband, three vivacious daughters, a beautiful home in rural Massachusetts, and satisfaction in her work, Jo Becker’s mind is invaded by a persistent restlessness. Then, an old roommate reappears to bring back Jo’s memories of her early 20s. . . . Her obsession with that period of her life and with the crime that concluded it eventually estrange Jo from everything she holds dear, causing her to tell lie after lie as she is pulled closer to this man from her past–and to a horrible secret.”
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Praise For…


“Riveting . . . The narrative pacing is masterly, building tension even in the most psychologically subtle passages.”
–CHRISTOPHER LEHMANN-HAUPT
The New York Times

“QUIETLY GRIPPING . . . Jo shines steadily as the flawed and thoroughly modern heroine. As in her 1986 novel, The Good Mother, Miller shows how impulses can fracture the family.”
USA Today

“MARVELOUS . . . POIGNANT . . . POWERFUL.”
Seattle Times/Post Intelligencer
