Publisher's Summary

One moment, Olivia Kavanaugh is preparing to walk down the aisle and embrace her own happily ever after. The next, she learns that her fiancé, Wyatt Hammond, has been in a fatal car accident. Then comes a startling discovery: Wyatt's car wasn't heading toward the church. He was fifty miles away...with a baby gift in the backseat.
Her faith shaken, Olivia pores over the clues left behind, desperate to know where Wyatt was going that day and why. As she begins uncovering secrets, she also navigates a tense relationship with her judgmental mother and tries to ignore the attentions of a former boyfriend who's moved back home. But when she starts receiving letters written by Wyatt before his death, she must confront a disturbing question: Can we ever know anyone fully, even someone we love?
When an unexpected path forward - though nothing like the life she once envisioned - offers the promise of a new beginning, will she be strong enough to let go of the past and move toward it?

Molly’s web

Great story unlikable characters.
Charlotte is the typical evangelical Christian, “hypocritical” she likes looking and quoting scriptures but don’t know the real walk.
Molly is a self centered selfish Southern bell. Whoa is me is her constant song. I get something life shattering happened to her, but at some point you got to start moving forward. She’s going to be a mother time to pull up her big girl panties.
Narrator’s voice is perfect for Molly.
The book ending is great wrap up for both mother and daughter.

Wonderful Story

This was not a book I would have chosen to read if it had not been written by someone whom I trusted to tell me a good story no matter the subject. Now, I want to read more by Mrs. Allan because I loved Since You've Been Gone and it was so refreshing to go outside my preferred genre and love a book.
The characters were believable and easy to connect with, the storytelling was fluid, and the settings were easy to visualize.
I did not, however, care for the narrator's accent. I realize she is from New Orleans just as I am, but she didn't sound like anyone I ever talk to. I also didn't think she understood where inflection belonged and I thought there were times in the story where she sounded like she was about to have a nap while the situation called for a more intense tone. Overall, though, I thought she did a nice job and would listen to another book narrated by her.
