A woman steps over the line into the unthinkable in this
brilliant, powerful, and unforgettable new novel by the
author of The Lovely Bones and Lucky.
years Helen Knightly has given her life to others: to her
haunted mother, to her enigmatic father, to her husband and
now grown children. When she finally crosses a terrible
boundary, her life comes rushing in at her in a way she
never could have imagined. Unfolding over the next
twenty-four hours, this searing, fast-paced novel explores
the complex ties between mothers and daughters, wives and
lovers, the meaning of devotion, and the line between love
and hate. It is a challenging, moving, gripping story,
written with the fluidity and strength of voice that only
Alice Sebold can bring to the page.
