Description

Friends since earliest childhood, Annie, Jake, and Mason have a special bond. When Annie's parents die on the same night that she and Mason get married, the three friends decide to raise Annie's infant sister, Opal, together. Not surprisingly, their bonds of intimacy, already deeply entangled, become strained. As Annie struggles, events take on a momentum of their own. And then, one fateful night, the three friends goad each other into stepping over a line, with shocking consequences for each of them.

Professional reviews

"This story of love and jealousy among three friends who decided to raise a child together is emotional and fierce. Yet, however powerful the writing, the book isn't as eloquent as many of Ursula Hegi's previous works. It is choppy where it should flow, and that may be the problem. Narrators Gabra Zackman and Oliver Wyman often sound stilted, as if they can't quite find the right pace. And during the many emotionally tense scenes, there is a tendency to sound screechy. The characters in this book would benefit from a deeply wrought interpretation; this one doesn't quite deliver. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
