This is a masterfully written novel that will pull you in from the very first page, and not let you go until the very last. Chambers has an exceptional gift for bringing her characters to vivid life and giving the reader a stake in the fate of each one, no matter how flawed or unsympathetic. The pacing is excellent, the emotional tension unrelenting. Chambers paints a surprisingly complex story in the context of a single weekend gathering, and with one or two minor exceptions, paints thoroughly human characters caught up in disturbing but believable situations. I cannot recommend this novel enough, and I am looking forward to reading more by this very talented author.

This first sentence in the prologue certainly had me hooked and I knew I had to find out who this woman was.
Violet, who wants to lay the past to rest after 12 years, asks her sister, Olivia to help her get all the family together. They had been present years ago at a gathering and have not been together since. Olivia is quite reluctant to rehash the bad memories as is the rest of the family but they do decide to go to the gathering held at Olivia and Joel's house. The Cameron brothers have always been close until a horrible tragedy and misunderstandings split them apart. The youngest of Joel and Olivia's children has repressed memories of the event that keeps coming back to her in dreams. No one will talk about what happened to her Uncle Scott and now that she is 17 she has questions she needs answers to. Will the family be able to come to terms with the past and move on? All I can say is this book is remarkable in that it lays the lives and emotions of a dysfunctional family out there for all to see. I think the author did a wonderful job telling this story with compassion and honesty. A riveting novel that will have you turning the pages just to see what happens next. I loved it and highly recommend it.
The Cameron family are having a family reunion 12 years after a shocking event happened at home of one of the brothers.
The book kept me guessing and had good strong characters but the plot kept flitting form pass to present so many times that I was pleased to get to the actual who done it part.
I liked the book and I liked the way the you couldn't predict the ending.

We are reunited with Olivia's Sister Violet, and her husband Joel, and daughter Lottie. Violet has convinced her sister to bring the Cameron Family together, for what purpose we find out later! Even though this family has seemed to move on from the events that happened on that Summer weekend, things have never been the same.
This book will hold you until the end, and you will never guess how it all ends!
I received this book from the Author Jessica Chambers, and was not required to give a positive review.
