Rose McKenna was a wife and mother of two, she was helping in her daughter's school when something blew up near the lunch room and a fire started, as she was trying to help get the children out, she thought about her daughter that always hides in the restroom because of a birthmark on her face and she gets bullied for it. Rose fought through the fire and finally got to her little daughter and got them both out, but the smoke had got to Melly her daughter so they were both taken to the hospital. Not knowing then how bad the blast had been until later when she learned that a teacher and two lunch room workers were killed and a little girl was in a coma in IC.
As the story progresses Rose gets blamed for the little girl that ran back into the fire and then she already had a secret that she had always kept. The father of Melly was dead and she was not married to the father of her baby son. But all through the book when something went wrong the word "Mother" was always in a sentence by itself and I could not understand why, until way over in the book when she disclosed it.
I had no idea that this book would be such a great read as I have never read any of Lisa's work before even though she is a "New York Times Bestselling Author". The book is full of anything you may want to read about, love, mystery, children and the author really tells the story that will keep you turning page after page. No fair looking in the back to see how it all ends, sometime it is tempting but I don't ever.
Thanks to St. Martin's Press for sending me this book free for me to read and enjoy, It is my choice to do the review.
