  1. Chandra

    Lily is starting her career as a lawyer after a whirlwind romance and marriage to Ed. She wants to leave her past behind but find it’s making more of an impact on her present than she expected. Her next door neighbor is an attractive Italian woman with a nine year old daughter, Carla, that she takes under her wing, because she knows what it feels like to be “different”. Little does she know how much this “good deed” (and all the good things she tries to do in all aspects of her life) will affect her throughout her career and marriage. Secrets are secrets for a reason and not everything is what it appears to be. Actions beget actions and sometimes it’s just better to not interfere.

    I’m a bit torn with this book. It kept me wanting to read it, but at the same time I was somewhat indifferent. I didn’t have much investment in the characters. Chapter by chapter it goes from Lily as a young solicitor to Carla, age 9… then fast forwards 12 years later where Carla is starting her career as a solicitor as well and incorporates herself back in Lily and Ed’s lives, now knowing that secrets are a powerful weapon. The last quarter of this book was the best part, but the lead up felt a bit lacking. Did I like this book? Absolutely. Did I love it? I’m not entirely certain. There was one slight mistake in the arc that gave away a twist, which I think affected my opinion a bit, but overall I was captivated and didn’t want to put the book down. 3 1/2 stars.
