Molly Tipton and her husband are looking forward to retirement, but Molly s life suddenly spirals out of control when her oldest daughter is involved in a terrible accident. An icy road and a sharp turn leave one woman dead, another clinging to life.

While two families grieve, details emerge that reveal Molly s daughter was driving under the influence. As she prepares her daughter for the prospect of a vehicular homicide lawsuit, Molly discovers her oldest child is not the only one injured and forced to deal with past mistakes.

If it s true that time heals all wounds, what are we to do with our scars?

My Thoughts: 

This book was… Interesting. I don’t think I loved it, but I don’t think I hated it. Am I going to go and recommend it to everyone I’ve ever met? Honestly, no. I’m not going to deter you from picking this one up though!

This was a book with a focus on religion, and not exactly in a good way. There was nothing too pushy about Molly and her religion, but the way she judged her daughter Laney for it was very frustrating. I know, I shouldn’t criticise a religious book for having too much religion! It just bothered me how judgmental she was, about basically everything Laney did. Yes, she made some mistakes, but was it really all because she stopped following God? Hmm, maybe not.

I did really like the relationship between the characters though. Laney, understandably, had a lot of emotions and a lot to deal with after her car accident. She was hurting, a lot, and Molly tried her best to help get her through it. She had an amazing support system from her family and friends, which I hope she really appreciated. I really loved seeing her grow closer and closer to Molly, and seeing how Molly learned to deal with the way they had grown apart. The second sister, too, was really sweet and someone that Laney really needed. It was the characters that kept me interested in this book, because they were so real and I had to know how they were going to deal with each new, scary situation as it arose.

I wouldn’t say this book was outstanding, it was definitely full of flaws. However, it was still something I wanted to carry on reading, and I did enjoy it in the end!

I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!
