The school is on fire. Her children are inside.
Grace runs toward the burning building, desperate to reach them.
In the aftermath of the devastating fire which tears her family apart, Grace embarks on a mission to find the person responsible and protect her children from further harm. This fire was not an accident, and her daughter Jenny may still be in grave danger. Grace is the only one who can discover the culprit, and she will do whatever it takes to save her family and find out who committed the crime that rocked their lives. While unearthing truths about her life that may help her find answers, Grace learns more about everyone around her -- and finds she has courage she never knew she possessed.

Makes you think!
This author's writing is quite unique; her narrator tells the story "as a conversation" . After reading "Sister", I was prepared for this but was still overwhelmed with her ability to put words to feelings and thoughts that I've had but could not, or didn't need to articulate. Lupton is an amazingly intuitive writer- it is too difficult to put her novel down!
Really enjoyed! Well written and kept me interested throughout the book.
Couldn't put it down.
