No writer today illuminates the struggles of families—and the crises that can tear them apart—better than #1 New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard. “A first-rate storyteller” (Newsweek) who “renders her characters flawlessly, endowing them with a humanity that is both accessibly grounded and astonishingly deep” (Bookslist), the author of The Deep End of the Ocean, Twelve Times Blessed, and The Breakdown Lane now tells of a young woman’s odyssey from innocence...and her desperate battle to be released from intolerable loss.

Twelve-year-old Veronica Swan’s idyllic life in a close-knit Mormon community is shattered when her two younger sisters are brutally murdered. Although her parents find the strength to forgive the deranged killer, Scott Early, Veronica cannot do the same.

Years later, she sets out alone to avenge her sisters’ deaths, dropping her identity and severing ties in the process. But as she closes in on Early, Veronica will discover the true meaning of sin and compassion…before she makes a decision that will change her and her family forever.

With a rare grace and piercing vision of people in turmoil, Jacquelyn Mitchard once again demonstrates her mastery of both suspense and complex human emotions as she explores the often surprising, mysterious acts that give full meaning to our lives.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 5/12/2011

    " Another good story about family and what binds them together. She's one of my favorite authors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 5/12/2011

    " This book doesn't get the attention as much as The Deep End of the Ocean, but it is one of my favorites. I just love the story. A heroine's journey into the past who discovers what she really wants may not be what she's been searching for her entire adult life. Great storyline. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 5/9/2011

    " I enjoyed this book, although it was tough getting through the horrific crime that occurred in the beginning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 4/29/2011

    " Pretty good but not great. I like the story and the love story but it was too preachy in parts. It was like she was introducing and defending mormonism to the masses. Didn't need it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn | 4/28/2011

    " This book was such an emotional rollercoaster. I went through feeling every sort of emotion right along with Ronnie. It is hard to imagine the amount of strength it would take to forgive someone for such a horrible crime but the ending was well done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebekah | 4/16/2011

    " I received this book as a present. When I read the synopsis I thought I was going to hate this book. I loved it. Very well written, heartbreaking and lesson-learning all at the same time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candice | 4/5/2011

    " Some tough subject matter for a Mom to handle in the beginning. And a few too many coincidences that made me roll my eyes here and there, but for the most part I enjoyed this book and wanted to keep reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 3/17/2011

    " Gave interesting perspective into different characters' opinions. Excellent read for mental health issues. "

    " Great book, very different story than I have ever read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 3/4/2011

    " This was a great book. It was very powerful and at times hard to even imagine because of the awful situation but very good read. It felt like you really understood the protagonists struggles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danelle | 2/18/2011

    " I really liked it. The Mormon aspect was really interesting and made me more aware of their faith- in a positive way. Good story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 2/10/2011

    " I really enjoyed reading this book, learned a lot about mormons of which i didn't know anything really. Book is a tear jerker but i really liked the story. I am a big fan of jacquelyn mitchard too, love her books! "
