Publisher's Summary

In this mesmerizing drama, one life-altering event catapults a family into turmoil, revealing secrets that may leave them fractured forever...or bind them together tighter than ever before.
From the outside, the Davenports look like any other family living a completely ordinary life - until that devastating day when five-year-old Jonah is killed, and the family is torn apart. As the fury of guilt engulfs them, the Davenports slowly start to unravel, one by one.
Losing her son forces Rachel to withdraw into a frayed, fuzzy reality. Her husband, Sam, tries to remain stoic, but he's consumed by regret with the choices he's made. Eden mourns her brother, while desperately fighting to regain a sense of normalcy. And Aunt Ruth, Rachel's sister, works too hard to care for the family, even as her own personal issues haunt her.
Told from multiple points of view - including Jonah's - the family struggles to cope with unthinkable loss. But as they face their own dark secrets about that terrible day, they have a choice: to be swallowed up in sadness forever, or begin the raw, arduous ascent back to living.

Couldn’t listen to that awful voice...

I can’t rate the story or the overall performance because the voice of the dead boy was so grating and awful I could not listen further.
Too bad. Maybe I’ll try this one in print.

Strange and Distant Point Of View

First, I can't understand how this book could be classified in the Mystery/Thriller genre. What was the mystery and where was the suspense? Even worse, nothing in this story felt true or sounded in any way real to me. I had the feeling as I listened that the author had absolutely never actually experienced first hand any of the things that happened in this novel. For example, I don't think Thomas could possibly have ever owned a dog--based on the way she wrote about the dog. I won't even address the issues related to the reality of the experience of losing a child. The whole thing just felt fake, dishonest and distant. What a waste.
