  "Book has some discussion value...2 and a half stars for me really" by PECHEMAN (see profile) 03/28/11

This was an OK story...I think it could have been a lot better..at first it was interesting and a quick read with the car accident..but after that it went downhill..it did not touch upon things it should have, like the friendship between Allison and Claire...Also the accident could have played a bigger part, but it did not pan out like it could have...There definitely is discussion in the relationships of all the characters and how they ended up.

 
  "Over rated" by lpollinger (see profile) 05/12/17

Four people, two of them are lifelong friends, are changed by a tragic accident. Marriages and trusts are broken and forgiveness does not seem to be an answer.
The story is told by the four main characters with a back story that is told in reverse chronological order. I felt the accident was not important, the choices the couples made would have been done so with out it, no matter what. My bookclub will discuss this this week.
