At around the 75% point, the plot started to drag when the characters got all introspective and spent too much time either day dreaming about the past or fantasizing about how things might have been. Even so, I really liked it.
If your wife/husband die in an accident and you wake up after six weeks from coma, would you go have sex and holding the hand of the one person withdrawing information from you or would you call the police and have her arrested/interrogated and help with the rest of the search for the reckless driver?
I know my answer and I know the book's answer and they diverge. And I'm not saying that I would make a better choice but somehow it felt like the easy way out, with or without white butterflies. On the top of that there was also other characters's actions that seemed pretty weird. Of course, it's explained why they do what they do but something seemed slightly weird. I mean not everyone can have a shady sense of truth and become a criminal over night just because of circumstances. I believe we have choices.
It would also have been nice to have one more chapter or two about what happened to the characters next and how they go on with their life.
All in all it was a nice book but still missing something.
Thomas Ford, the woman's husband, manages to survive the accident. Barely. Did he do what he could to try and save his wife?
Lorna, a young woman with a mercenary heart is determined to find a shortcut to a better life. She has come into information about the cause of the wreck. Her motives are crystal clear. Unfortunately she will set events in motion that will have dire, and deadly, consequences.
I truly enjoyed this book. It's becomes almost mesmerizing to watch the ever widening ripples caused by a bad decision- and there are several bad decisions made in this story.
This is not a book for the faint of heart. There is violence and, in my opinion, true evil here. Some of the characters are both victims and aggressors. That is part of why I found the story so fascinating- the kindest person may still be guilty while the most evil person is dead set on protecting the people he "loves". If you're looking for something with little or no gray areas it won't be here.
