Tessa Russo is the mother of two young children and the wife
of a renowned pediatric surgeon. Despite
her own mother’s warnings, Tessa has recently given up her career to focus on
her family and the pursuit of domestic happiness. From the outside, she seems destined
to live a charmed life.
Valerie Anderson is an attorney and single mother to
six-year-old Charlie—a boy who has never known his father. After too many
disappointments, she has given up on romance—and even to some degree,
friendships—believing that it is always safer not to expect too much.
Although both women live in the same Boston suburb, the two
have relatively little in common aside from a fierce love for their children.
But one night, a tragic accident causes their lives to converge in ways no one
could have imagined.
In alternating, pitch-perfect points of view, Emily Giffin
creates a moving, luminous story of good people caught in untenable
circumstances. Each being tested in ways they never thought possible. Each
questioning everything they once believed. And each ultimately discovering what
truly matters most.
