"From the author of the New York Times bestseller and 2014 Edgar and Anthony nominee Reconstructing Amelia comes another harrowing, gripping novel that marries psychological suspense with an emotionally powerful story about a community struggling with the consequences of a devastating discovery. At the end of a long winter in well-to-do Ridgedale, New Jersey, the body of an infant is discovered in the woods near the town's prestigious university campus. No one knows who the baby is, or how her body ended up out there. But there is no shortage of opinions. When freelance journalist, and recent Ridgedale transplant, Molly Anderson is unexpectedly called upon to cover the story for the Ridgedale Reader, it's a risk, given the severe depression that followed the loss of her own baby. But the bigger threat comes when Molly unearths some of Ridgedale's darkest secrets, including a string of unreported sexual assaults going back twenty years. Meanwhile, Sandy, a high school dropout, searches for her volatile and now missing mother, and PTA president Barbara struggles to help her young son, who's suddenly having disturbing outbursts. Told from the perspectives of Molly, Barbara, and Sandy, Kimberly McCreight's taut and profoundly moving novel unwinds the tangled truth about the baby's death, revealing that these three women have far more in common than they realized. That the very worst crimes are committed against those we love. And that--sooner or later--the past catches up to all of us"--… (mais)

Oof! This was WILD. The stories intertwined so meticulously and I loved the writing, the story, everything. It wasn't quite what I was expecting but that wasn't disappointing at all. ( )

I give this story four stars because of the surprise ending. It was a good mystery. I liked the characters, it wasn't any better written than any other story...but the ending packed a punch. ( )

This is a hard book to review. Parts were amazing and I couldn’t put it down; yet other parts seem to drag on and on. I found there to be a lot of unnecessary repeating of events which was confusing to me. Actually had to go back and re-start the book twice to try and decipher which character went with who and to which sub story they belonged. This is not something I typically need to do, so it threw me off a bit. ( )

This is the third Kimberly McCreight audiobook that I've listened to in the last month and this one does not disappoint. There are plenty of twists and turns along the way to keep the reader guessing.

The body of a newborn infant is found by a bridge in the town river. Molly, a former attorney and now a reporter, has been assigned to report on the story. Having gone through a painful and lengthy recovery from having lost a full term child, Molly insists on covering the story (even though her husband and others discourage her from doing so.) While Molly is interviewing townspeople, parallel stories develop. Jenna, who has ties to people in the community (including the police chief, a dean at the local university and a boy who drowned in the river where the newborn was found) and her teenage daughter move back to town. Changing narrators move the story forward offering different points of view and revealing certain truths. Additionally, Jenna's journals from her high school days fill in some blanks. Ultimately the identity of the baby is revealed and an decades old death is solved. ( )
