A Critic's Pick on Kirkusreviews.com
"An intriguing first novel that revolves around a husband's death and hidden secrets.
Women's fiction with a touch of noir."
A story about looking forward to restart life, even in the presence of death
"When a book starts from a seemingly perfect place for the character, you know he is not going to stay there long... So when Jack Smith is looking at the face of Sandra, his mistress, thinking "I am the luckiest man alive," his luck is at its end. Not only would Marie, his wife's sister, find out about his affair, but he would to live long enough to try to handle the scandal with Pam, his meek, trusting wife.
This book is about looking forward to restart life already, even in the presence of death. It is about healing, part of which comes from forgiveness. I know this sounds strange to some readers, who find Pam's behavior 'too unreal." Apparently it is easier and perhaps more natural for many of us to succumb to vengefulness. At the same time, this is exactly why this book is so fascinating. It offers a different possibility, a more hopeful one. "There was something about cleaning up, washing everything, that spoke of new beginnings."
