Did it feel like you had a choice? Or were you driven by forces beyond your control?
Sylvia Sandon always swore she wouldn't become her mother. But one August morning, she finds herself walking the same path as the fervently religious yet faithless Elaine…into an affair she feels powerless to resist.
Against the backdrop of the California brushfires in the 70's, 12-year-old Sylvie agreed to hold a secret that would devour her family's dream of happiness. Now struggling to create a better life in small town New England, Sylvia nonetheless feels caught in the coils of history — as she confronts the embers of her own dying marriage, the all-consuming needs of two daughters and her faltering artistic career.
Then Tai Rosen — the father of a student — ignites an unexpected passion and a familiar betrayal that could illuminate the past, even as it jeopardises everything dear.
Overall it was a good read.
