Publisher's Summary

The Maxwells and the Popes have been friends forever. The women were college roommates, their husbands are partners in the same law firm, their kids have grown up next door to each other, and the two families share both vacations and holidays. Like Wisteria Lane, the "perfect" suburban street of Desperate Housewives, all is beautiful and serene, until an accident forces these close neighbors to look beneath the surface. And when their idyllic lives are unexpectedly shattered by a moment that can never be erased or forgotten, their faith in one another, and in themselves, is put to the supreme test.
In this moving, unforgettable story, Barbara Delinsky exquisitely captures the depth and complexity of the human heart as few writers can.

Absorbing story of two families and their longstanding friendship

Two families are the best of friends until a betrayal comes to light and the effect goes rippling through both adults and children with devastating impact. Issues come to light that have their roots in events that took place many years earlier. I found the characters richly drawn and intriguing, although I'm sure that this abridgement cut short a lot of the back story I would have thoroughly enjoyed. This story deserves an unabridged recording. Excellent narration. 3 skips in the audio.
