Publisher's Summary

It's the phone call every parent dreads: in the middle of the night, Sandy Cline learns that her twenty-year-old son, Jordan, has been in a car accident. Her nephew, Travis, was also in the car, along with Travis's girlfriend. All three are alive - but barely. The car was smashed against a tree along a remote and winding road, beautiful but deadly, in their rural Texas Hill Country town.
In the wake of the car crash, the close-knit family is tested like never before. Jenna, Travis's mother, blames Jordan - as well as her sister, Sandy - after reports surface that Jordan had been driving. As the young adults struggle to survive, tension between their parents escalates. But when trust is broken and a shocking family secret is exposed, it creates a perfect storm of harrowing consequences. Rumors in the small town spread like wildfire. When details of the accident are questioned, Sandy and Jenna wonder if their family has been destroyed beyond repair.
As always, there's much more to the story...if the family is to survive, they will have to come together to confront the terrible truth and overcome their pain. But are some betrayals unforgivable?

What did you like best about Faultlines? What did you like least?

I don't have a "like best" to write about....My "like least" would be that every time you turn around something tragic is happening or has happened to pretty much everyone in the story. It feels like it's the only tool in the author's tool box. The story is quite predictable as well even if you aren't completely certain how what you know will happen will be accomplished.


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

No surprises!


What didn’t you like about Donna Postel’s performance?

I hated the vocal tonality of the reader as well as the way she made it everything sound heartbreaking.


Could you see Faultlines being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No


Any additional comments?

I stuck with it, but in the end I felt it was a waste of my time.

That was a great read!

The story line started out fast and did not slow down. It was very interesting to see how the different relationships tighten and loosened throughput the story as the plot twisted and shifted. Most of the readers have can relate to some aspect of the storyline, which makes the book even more emotion-invoking.

The narrator also does a great job of following the dynamics of the story and character personalities.
