Nora and Brendan Hamilton live in an old farmhouse nestled in the Adirondack Mountains of New York.  Nora wakes up one wintry morning to find that her world has been turned upside down.  Nora’s husband Brendon is a police officer in love with his wife, his job and his hometown.  However, this wintry morning Nora discovers that her husband has committed suicide.   He has not left a note or anything to indicate why he would take his own life.


As Nora attempts to find out the reason for her husband’s suicide, she finds every door is closed.  No one will give her answers. Nora has never felt completely accepted by her husband’s family and friends and she has no one to turn to in her search for answers.


Every stone she uncovers only leads to more questions.   This intriguing book leaves the reader quickly turning pages and looking for answers.


This is Milchman’s debut novel and the winner of the Mary Higgins Clark Award.   I hope to read many more novels by this author.
