“An unpredictable page-turner that unfolds in the voices of three superbly distinct characters.” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
“A gripping, thought-provoking journey.” (Jodi Picoult)
Nina Browning is living the good life after marrying into Nashville’s elite. More recently, her husband made a fortune selling his tech business, and their adored son has been accepted to Princeton. Yet sometimes the middle-class small-town girl in Nina wonders if she’s strayed from the person she once was.
Tom Volpe is a single dad working multiple jobs while struggling to raise his headstrong daughter, Lyla. His road has been lonely, long, and hard, but he finally starts to relax after Lyla earns a scholarship to Windsor Academy, Nashville’s most prestigious private school. Amid so much wealth and privilege, Lyla doesn’t always fit in - and her overprotective father doesn’t help - but in most ways, she’s a typical teenage girl, happy and thriving.
Then, one photograph, snapped in a drunken moment at a party, changes everything. As the image spreads like wildfire, the Windsor community is instantly polarized, buzzing with controversy and assigning blame. At the heart of the lies and scandal, Tom, Nina, and Lyla are forced together - all questioning their closest relationships, asking themselves who they really are, and searching for the courage to live a life of true meaning.

Narrator choice for Tom is bizarre!
Overall I enjoyed the story and the voice acting done by Dorothy Dillingham Blue and Catherine Taber. The casting choice of Milton Bagby for Tom is extremely confusing. It seems like the character is supposed to be about 45-47, yet the voice actor sounds like he's in his 70's. I just looked it up, he's 70. Listening to him talk about sex or anything adjacent to it in the book just felt very uncomfortable. It was difficult to get into the story and his side of it didn't make as much sense coming from Bagby. He's a great voice actor, I want to be clear that I'm not criticizing him. This was just not the role for him, way too young of a character. I am definitely criticizing whoever cast him. I kept thinking, how is this 70 year old guy the father to a 15 year old. So weird. I hope whoever made these choices does better on the next book they work on!
