Publisher's description:

A powerful, provocative novel about marriage and motherhood, love and forgiveness.

Tessa Russo is a stay-at-home mother of two young children and the wife of a renowned pediatric surgeon. Valerie Anderson is an attorney and single mother to six-year-old Charlie-a boy who has never known his father. Although both women live in the same Boston suburb, they are strangers to one another and have little in common, aside from a fierce love for their children. But one night, a tragic accident causes their lives to converge in ways no one could have imagined.

This is the moving, luminous story of good people caught in untenable circumstances. Each being tested in ways they never thought possible. Each questioning everything they once believed. And each ultimately discovering what truly matters most.

Average Price:  $26.99

I own every single book written by Emily Giffin. Her books are fantastic and such an easy read. I get hooked the minute I start reading them. I will always purchase her new books as they are released :)

I read this over the long weekend and it was a great read. It's very realistic and it shows that even really good people can cheat and that cheating can happen to anybody. Even though this book was sad, it was also very hopeful and it really made me reflect on my relationship with my boyfriend.

Chicklit fave Emily Giffin's latest novel is about loss: a couple's dwindling marriage, and a single mother's near brush with losing her son in a devastating accident. Their lives intertwine as the stories are told side by side from different perspectives.

I'll start off by saying that this is true to Giffin form - always asking the question "what is a dealbreaker?" I felt sympathy for all the characters to different degrees and was fairly engrossed in the story.

While I found it a decent read, I preferred her earlier novels. This book, as most others, finds a way to tie in characters from before - though I found it forced here. If you have never read Giffin before you will probably not peg the ending. However, if you are an avid fan, you'll see this conclusion from a mile away.

Good read, but not her best.
