Publisher's Summary

Devastating secrets tear two families apart in this acclaimed novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods
For ten years Emily Dobbs and Marcie Carter have been the closest of friends. They've raised their kids together, shared joy and heartache, exchanged neighborhood gossip over tea. But when Marcie's son, now a college freshman sports star, is arrested for date rape, the bond between the families could be shattered forever.
As the Carters try to deal with the unthinkable, Emily discovers her daughter has been hiding a terrible secret...a secret that threatens the futures of both families. Recently divorced, Emily struggles to keep it all together - to support her terrified daughter, to maintain her friendship with Evan's mother and to have faith in the detective who could change all of their lives.
When things seem darkest, both she and Marcie discover that sometimes the first step toward a better future is mending fences with the past.

Excellent Book

While the synopsis gives away a good portion of the book, it's still excellent as friendships, families and new relationships are tested in ways none of them would have imagined. The narrator does a great job through the book, allowing the story to tell itself and not the other way around

Well written story about rape

Would you listen to Mending Fences again? Why?

No... as a rape survivor the story was too focused on the survivors life and outlook. Not that it is a bad thing but it isn't a comfortable thing as a survivor.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the building of the characters. Sherryl Woods is known for building characters and worlds that as a reader you really come to care about. This one is no different. It is a very well written beautiful story - just hits too close to home as a rape survivor.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. Most of her books I pretty much do listen to all in one sitting. But this is a good book that makes you uncomfortable if you've been there.

Any additional comments?

This is a beautiful story about families growing together and ending up torn apart by rape. Would I recommend reading it? Absolutely! However even if you think you're ready if you've been raped having it brought to life can be dangerous.
