Author: Pat Dunlap Evans
Genre: Women’s Fiction
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
When history professor Andrew Ward ignores his wife Lizzy’s premonition that something will happen if he allows their son to go out one stormy night, tragedy strikes. Andrew is too anguished to admit he was wrong and, over the years, he and Lizzy drift into avoidance.
Forgotten in the marital divide, young daughter Jane can’t forgive her brother’s death. Nor can Andrew’s brother Thomas, an arrogant millionaire and a perpetual prickle in Andrew’s side.
When Lizzy decides to leave, Jane — who is now a tech guru and mother of three — urges her mother to repair her marriage. Oblivious to the women’s plans, Andrew hides in his office, trying to write a grand apologia to atone for his heartbreaking error. But when a second tragedy strikes, each family member faces a choice that no one wants to make. And Andrew must find the way to leave a memory.
