Publisher's Summary

Angela Pisel's poignant debut explores the complex relationship between a mother and a daughter, their quest to discover the truth, and whether or not love can prevail - even from behind bars.
Grace Bradshaw knows the exact minute she will die. On death row for murdering her infant son, her last breath will be taken on February 15 at 12:01 a.m. Eleven years, five months, and 27 days separate her from the last time she heard her precious daughter's voice and the final moment she'd heard anyone call her mom. Out of appeals, she can focus on only one thing - reconnecting with her daughter and making sure she knows the truth.
Secrets lurk behind Sophie Logan's big house and even bigger bank account. Every day when she kisses her husband good-bye, she worries her fabricated life is about to come crumbling down. No one knows the unforgivable things her mother did to tear her family apart - not her husband, who is a prominent plastic surgeon, or her "synthetic" friends who live in her upscale neighborhood.
Grace's looming execution date forces Sophie to revisit the traumatic events that haunted her childhood. When she returns to her hometown, she discovers new evidence about her baby brother William's death 17 years ago - proof that might set her mother free but shatter her own marriage forever.
Sophie must quickly decide if her mother is the monster the prosecutor made her out to be or the loving mother she remembers - the one who painted her toenails glittery pink and plastered Post-it notes with inspiring quotes ("100 percent failure rate if you don't try") all over Sophie's bathroom mirror - before their time runs out.

Powerful story.

This book was difficult to turn off. The author created two very strong yet vulnerable women. With every turn of the page there was an unexpected twist or slight turn in the plot that left you wanting to hear more!
Heart wrenching and joyous, nerve wracking and yet satisfying. Highly recommended.

Wonderful story

What a great book! Grace's struggles to connect with her daughter were so moving and her compassion to her fellow inmates was a lesson to us all. Thanks to the author for demonstrating humanity at its best and worst in the same story.
