"[A] wrenching first novel, flies in the face of everything movies and your better class of talk shows say about bad things that happen to good people … wonderfully written."
—Gail Collins, The New York Times Book Review
"A drama with the tension of a thriller that moves deeply into the emotional territory of family ties."
"Riveting … twists that will spin you around."
"Take a deep breath. … This riveting story won't let you come up for air."
