A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

What if you did something unforgivable—and had to live with it? This intimate, page-turning family drama for readers of Jodi Picoult explores the profound power of the truths we’re scared to face . . . about our marriages, our children, and ourselves.
 
Eve Lattimore is barely keeping things together. Her husband works fifteen hundred miles away, leaving Eve to juggle singlehandedly the demands of their teenaged daughter and fragile son. Tyler was born with XP—the so-called vampire disease: even one moment of sun exposure can have fatal consequences. So Eve does what any mother might do: she turns their home into a fortress. Every day, she watches the sun rise and fall, and keeps a close eye on her child. Friendships fall away. Her marriage is on the rocks. Her daughter’s going through something but won’t talk about it. Still, Eve believes that it’s all a matter of time before a cure is found, and everything can resume its normal course.
 
Until the night she makes a terrible decision, and it’s not only the sun she has to hide from.

Customer Reviews

Excellent book!

I have nothing negative to say about this book. It was a definite page-turner for me and it wasn't only because of the suspense. The story was a really good drama, and believable. All of the characters in this book were well-developed as was the story. I learned a lot about XP disease, too. I was surprised throughout the entire book and it did not disappoint at the end. Great book.

The Deepest Secret

This book is just like a lifetime move about a woman who ran over her best friends daughter. I knew just about how it would read and end. Very disappointed I spent a lot of money on it.

Well worth reading

This is not a book to pass up. A friend received an advanced copy and loaned it to me. The story line engages with twists and turns. While the main story is the disappearance of a young girl, there are many other heart tugging stories in here. The characters are strong, believable and full of emotions.
The book is very thought provoking and seems to ask: How far are we willing to go for the ones we love? I found myself wondering about the character long after the book was completed. One of the most enjoyable books I have read.
