9 hours 23 minutes
In the early hours of a summer morning, a young woman steps into the path of an oncoming bus. A tragic accident? Or suicide? At the center of this puzzle is Adrian Wolfe, a successful architect and grief-stricken widower, who, a year after his third wife's death, begins to investigate the cause. As Adrian looks back on their brief but seemingly happy marriage, disturbing secrets begin to surface. The divorces from his two previous wives had been amicable, or so it seemed; his children, all five of them, were resilient as ever, or so he thought. But something, or someone, must have pushed Maya over the edge. Fans of Liane Moriarty and Jojo Moyes will be captivated by this riveting family drama with a dark mystery at its core.

Creative entertaining but story line a bit too contrived and wrapped up all nice and tidy. At the end my sympathies lay with the younger children who were masterfully narrated as well as poor Mia.

Love this author. A great story of questioning how truly well we know ourselves and the ones around us. Great narration too.

Beautifully written. Jewell has two distinctive styles that are very different - the psychological suspense and, as this one is, the sensitive observation of complex relationships, high she does with both honesty and tenderness. She always manages to strike the right tone of dialogue, no matter the age or gender, which is such a skill. She never makes children saccharine sweet, but deep and authentic. An accolade too for the narrator, who captures the many different characters so naturally.

The narrator was great. The story wasn’t much of a thriller or mystery, more of a story about a dysfunctional family.
