Publisher's Summary

Rebecca Griffin has everything she could ever want - or so says her big-hearted, opinionated Italian-American family. But now her marriage is unraveling and her teenage daughter is hurtling toward self-destruction. While Rebecca struggles to hang onto her husband and save her daughter, she learns of the mysterious death of a young woman long ago at a local prison. As Rebecca's mother, Eva, reveals their family's connection to the girl, Rebecca is drawn into the story - it haunts her.
A search for answers takes Rebecca from her small idyllic New England town, to the congested streets of East Boston and the tight-knit Italian neighborhood where most of her family still resides. As she tries to dig up the facts of the young girl's life and violent death, the puzzle pieces in Rebecca's life begin to take shape and she faces the difficult truth about her husband, Drew.
Rebecca, her troubled daughter, Dana, and an enigmatic figure from the past, unknowingly embark on a collision course one desperate autumn night when the answers they seek come to light in the most forgotten of places from the most innocent of messengers.

Good story

A valiant effort.
While I understand where our protagonist is coming from, I just felt that sometimes the metaphors came off as a bit pretentious. With a great story that didn't quite reach DNF territory, I did roll my eyes a few times.
Figuring it would be relatable as a wife and busy mother, we do wear many hats in our lifetime, though her choices--big or small--warrant more than her "turn the other cheek" attitude.
The meat of the story finally kicks in and makes up for her general flippant demeanor. I don't like this character. Nor do I like her daughter. Or her husband.
Okay. I guess the fact that I even have an opinion means I care a little.
I was given a copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.

Interesting

This story had me from the beginning. Mary Jane Conlon did a great job with the narration.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
