Summary
With a thriving medical practice, a loving wife, and a beautiful home in New Jersey, Dr. Pete Dizinoff has all the best in life. Pete and Elaine want the best for their son Alec, but 20-year-old Alec has dropped out of college and is living above their garage. That Alec's new girlfriend, Laura, is the 30-year-old troubled daughter of his parents' best friends makes matters worse. Back in high school, Laura was accused of killing her baby, a result of a hidden teenage pregnancy--an act that Dr. Pete can't get beyond.
Critique
A gripping and emotional read that keeps you reading with its slow building suspense. With well-drawn characters. Recommend.
