#1 International Bestseller "Kennedy is such a nimble storyteller... the pages fly."--Entertainment Weekly From the New York Times bestselling author of Leaving the World comes the compelling story of a woman whose one choice, made decades ago, comes back to haunt her. America in the 1960s was an era of radical upheaval-of civil rights protests and anti-war marches; of sexual liberation and hallucinogenic drugs. More tellingly, it was a time when you weren't supposed to trust anyone over the age of thirty; when, if you were young, you rebelled against your parents and their conservative values. But not Hannah Buchan. Hannah is a great disappointment to her famous radical father and painter mother. Instead of mounting the barricades and embracing this age of profound social change, she wants nothing more than to marry her doctor boyfriend and raise a family in a small town. Hannah gets her wish. But once installed as the doctor's wife in a nowhere corner of Maine, boredom sets in... until an unforeseen moment of personal rebellion changes everything. Especially as Hannah is forced into breaking the law. For decades, this one transgression in an otherwise faultless life remains buried. But then, in the charged atmosphere of America after 9/11, her secret comes out and her life goes into freefall.

Reviews

"Why isn't Douglas Kennedy a household name like Jodi Picoult? He should be. His intelligent novels walk the line between literary and commercial fiction, like Picoult's. And just as she does, he constructs plots around hotbutton social issues.... Kennedy is such a nimble storyteller... the pages fly. Do yourself a favor and look up some of his earlier novels: The Big Picture, Leaving the World, and A Special Relationship." --Entertainment Weekly "Kennedy's emotionally charged, reader-friendly tale of a woman on the verge will please his fans." --Publishers Weekly
