I found this book on my Nook for free. At first I was surprised by how long the book was (about 558 pages) But I got through the book fairly fast.
Christine Blacksworth is a driven, hardworking women in her mid twenties that is a part of running her father's corporate business. Her life changes forever when her father Charlie dies in a car accident on an icy road while he was at his cabin in the mountains 700 miles from their family home. Charlie would go to the cabin four days out of the month to take a break from his high demanding corporate job. Charlie's will is divided up and part of the money is left to Lily Desantro. Christine is confused on who this women is so she goes to the cabin to find out more information about Lily.
It turns out that Charlie was living with another woman four days out of the month and he had another family. The other woman's name was Miriam and they ended up having a daughter named Lily who is 13 years old and she has down syndrome. As Christine is trying to piece together everything she ends up having a relationship with Miriam and her half sister Lily. Christine feels like she has really found herself through the Desantros and she starts to understand how her father felt when he visited his other family.
Two problems that come up are Nate, who is Miriam's son who hated Charlie and what he did and Nate transfers it hostility to Christine. The other is Christine's alcoholic, pain-killer addicted mother, who has no idea that the Desantros' exist or where Christine is now going regularly. Or does she?
I would recommend this book and it raises a lot of questions on family relationships and family honor. For being a free Nook Book this book was amazing.
