Ana and Connor’s affair envelops both of them in a deep, delicious secret. When events take a tragic turn, there’s nobody to talk to, nobody to understand the grief, solitude and unending loss. This is an unflinching account of a love affair, the obsession, the deceit and the heartbreak. I was hooked from the opening paragraph and read the book in one day. There are lines of monologue that are poignant, poetic and almost hypnotic. Sharp observations of the pain and discomfort of being married, being in love and being left. Crossan has been a highly successful author of the young adult genre for years, but I feel sure this adult novel will eclipse her prior success and launch her into the forefront of an entirely new audience.
