From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Leaving Time, The Storyteller, and Nineteen Minutes...

To the outside world, they seem to have it all. Cassie Barrett, a renowned anthropologist, and Alex Rivers, one of Hollywood's hottest actors, met on the set of a motion picture in Africa. They shared childhood tales, toasted the future, and declared their love in a fairy-tale wedding. But when they return to California, something alters the picture of their perfect marriage. A frightening pattern is taking shape—a cycle of hurt, denial, and promises, thinly veiled by glamour. Torn between fear and something that resembles love, Cassie wrestles with questions she never dreamed she would face: How can she leave? Then again, how can she stay?


  • Not what I expected....

    By Can stop playing it
    I'm truthfully only on page 20 but this book is the driest JP book I ever read. I wasn't a fan of Lone Wolf, and the book so far reminds me of Lone Wolf. After having just read Faith and The Pact, this book is moving impossibly slowly. I can't say that I will finish it.

    Like all her books, this kept me running back to my IPad kindle whenever I could to get as many chapters in as time would allow. Very hard to put down. I love Jodi Picoult's writing style. I am ready to pick out the next one to read!

    To unbelievably real, accurate and sadly true. God bless the author for yet another example of the right thing to do. And the cycle continues. Lb Milwaukee WI
  • Shocking but true

    By Victoria in OK
    Another good page turner. Depicting true life events that unfortunately can happen.
  • An Eye Opener

    By elvis07
    An honest look at how we get stuck in a place we never intend to be and then fight our way back.
  • Too artificial

    By Loving my iPad
    Too far from any kind of reality to be thoroughly enjoyable.
