When life is at its best, the unimaginable can shatter everything you think you know.

Abigail Samuels has no reason to feel anything but joy on the morning her life falls apart. The epitome of the successful Jewish-American woman, she is married to a well-known and respected accountant and is in the middle of planning her daughter Kayla’s wedding. Kayla, too, wakes up that morning with the world in the palm of her hand. Having lived the charmed life of a well-loved child from a happy family, she is bright, pretty, and a Harvard law student who has never really questioned the path she found herself on.

With a shocking suddenness, all that is smashed to pieces in ways they could never have dreamed. When a heartbroken Kayla runs away to a desert commune run by a charismatic mystic, Abigail rushes to save her, only to find that there is nothing more whole than a broken heart.

    " I was disappointed. Felt the story was a bit rushed, characters weren't developed well enough and the plot was a bit contrived. Was disappointed in the ending. "

    " I bought this book after hearing Naomi Ragen speak about how her life changed so dramatically when false accusations were made against her. In that context, this book was very interesting, as the lives of the characters in this book were almost ruined as a consequence of accusations made against them. On its own, though, I thought the book was just ok. A good plot and quick read, but a little flat. "

    " I love this author. She is so tought provoking and her novels really make you stop and think about what is really important in life. I really enjoyed this book but I fealt that the ending was a bit rushed. She could have spent more time developing an ending instead of leaving it so abrupt "
