Justin Fisher has a successful career as the manager of a luxury hotel, a lovely wife, and a charming young son. While all signs point to a bright future, Justin can no longer ignore the hole in his life left by his estranged family. When he finally gathers the courage to reconnect with his troubled past, Justin is devastated to learn that his parents have passed away. And a visit to the cemetery brings the greatest shock of all—next to the graves of his father and mother sits a smaller tombstone for a three-year-old boy: a boy named Thomas Justin Fisher.

What follows is an extraordinary journey as Justin struggles with issues of his own identity and pieces together the complex and heartbreaking truth about his family. With great skill and care, Dianne Dixon explores the toll that misunderstandings, blame, and resentment can take on a family. But it is the intimate details of family life—a mother's lullaby for her son, a father's tragic error in judgment—that make this novel so exceptional and an absolute must for reading groups everywhere.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Linda | 2/19/2014

    " A short read about a marriage gone sour. Had a surprise ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Sheila | 2/16/2014

    " Improbable story of a man who goes home only to find his own grave which suggests that he died as a toddler. He can't remember most of his childhood and with the help of a psychiatrist and private investigator he puts some pieces of his past together. But the book just ends there without resolving the family secrets or reuniting him with his father and sisters. Very unsatisfying! "

    " I liked this fast-paced story & just know our book club will have a great discussion. The ending seemed a little tiresome, hence the 3-star rating. That said, I'd definitely read another book by this author. "

    " Dixon weaves a story that is unexpected and complex. I did not expect the ending but was satisfied with the path the author chose. The nature of secrets and how they can impact others was brilliantly illustrated in the lives of her characters. A good read but not a light hearted one. "
