This debut novel by NPR broadcast journalist touches on some difficult subjects: the violent death of a child, hatred and ultimately, forgiveness. How long can a family cling to an emotion for survival even though it is destroying their lives? Can hate really be left behind and forgiveness take its place? This would make an excellent bookclub selection.
