A tragic accident: One woman is left dead after she and another woman, both running away from their marriages, collide in the fog on a highway. The survivor, Isabelle, is left to pick up the pieces, not only of her own life but of the lives of the devastated husband and fragile son that the other woman, April, has left behind.
Together, they try to solve the mystery of where April was running to, and why. As these three lives intersect, they are left to ask, How well do we really know those we love - and how do we forgive the unforgivable?
“A magically written, heartbreakingly honest snapshot of the people we leave behind and those we can’t let go.... Caroline Leavitt is one of those fabulous, incisive writers you read and then ask yourself, 'Where has she been all my life?'” (Jodi Picoult)
"Caroline Leavitt is a splendid writer at the peak of her powers." (Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize winner)

I chose this book based on a glowing review from Jodi Picoult, whom I am a big fan of. Unlike Picoult, this author did not have the gift of developing believable characters whose perspectives were insightful.
Not the genre, but I would not read another book by this author.
I didn't so much dislike the narrator's reading, as find that she did not add any authenticity to the different characters and her portrayal made some of them feel even less likable than a different portrayal might have made them seem.
There was good subject matter that in more capable author's hands could have been very interesting...
Not worth the credit
