My Review

I really loved this book I couldn't put it down. The characters, the setting, and the overall scandal are fabulously written. Based off of the author's personal experience she delves into what life would be like if you husband or significant other is arrested and convicted? What would it be like as the son/daughter? Such a great perspective interwoven with God's love. A couple things in the book seemed unrealistic but in such a situation I imagine people do crazy things. I think Claire's ending seems too easy but who knows. I loved this book. 
I highly recommend!!
