Review quote

Louise Hunter's life was destroyed when (10 years ago) her husband Ben committed suicide. The catastrophe was compounded when her brother-in-law Jacob was murdered and her sister Susan abandoned her newborn daughter, identifying baby Jinnie as Ben's child. Louise spends her time trying to come to terms with the guilt caused by the one night she spent with Ben's friend Eric, and has cut off all ties with Eric although she knows he loves her. Louise begins to feel that happiness may be possible again when she adopts Jinnie. And then Susan decides that she wants Jinnie back. Cox is probably the number one author in this field at present, and few other saga writers can so effortlessly command the vast audience that she does.
