For years Helen Knightly has given her life to others: to
her haunted mother, to her enigmatic father, to her husband and grown children.
When she finally crosses a terrible boundary, her life comes rushing in at her
in a way she never could have imagined.
Unfolding over the next twenty-four hours, this searing,
fast-paced novel explores the complex ties between mothers and daughters, wives
and lovers; the meaning of devotion; and the line between love and hate. It is
a challenging, moving, gripping story, written with the fluidity and strength
of voice that only Alice Sebold has. Download and start listening now!
