Summary
Not one of us gets through adulthood escaping grief. We grieve for lost lives, lost dreams, lost loves. However it comes into our lives, grief must be dealt with and its process can feel lonely and harsh. This is story about grief. A woman's car skids through wet leaves one foggy autumn evening, instantly killing a child. In that moment, her carefully ordered life comes apart. A complex journey that involves a painful reexamination of her marriage, her ties to her adult children, her career, her closest friendship, an adulterous relationship, and her own childhood, parallels her exhausting fight for her own survival. At the center of the struggle is the child who has perished. To make peace with this child, to assuage her guilt, she must revisit another child: the child she herself had been, a child she had long ago chosen to leave behind. She must then decide: does she deserve to go on? Does she even want to? Or will she find the courage to battle back to wholeness and sanity? That decision, hers alone to make, will forever alter the lives of the people she most loves
