While Louise takes steps to move on with her life, Don cannot come to terms with the chain of events that led to her death. Instead, he is determined to bring someone to account.

Reviewed by Eastleigh Library Wednesday Club:
A sad, tragic novel. Well written from the point of view of the grieving mother. The story of the accident gradually emerges. It portrays how members of a family deal with their loss in their own, quite different ways and the effect then on the other members of the family.
