Ms. Clark did an excellent job in showing how readily love ones are to accept and project blame amidst a tragedy. A young woman suffers an untimely demise. Her demise not only ends her life but negatively impacts those around her. Ellie, the sister, feels she should have done more. Andrea’s parents both feel the same. The loss of a child provides such trauma that all around it are impacted.
Frankly I thought the main protagonist, Ellie, was a flaming idiot on more than one occasion in the book. However stirring emotion is something every author hopes to provoke so
Clark did well.
The human side of the story, not just the plot is a hallmark of Ms. Clark. Her books never fail to delve into the motivations of her characters.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER
have a bearing on my recommendations.
