Goodreads:  Three people, each crying out for help.There’s Karen, about to lose her father; Abby, whose son has autism and needs constant care, and Michael, a family man on the verge of bankruptcy. As each sinks under the strain, they’re brought together at Moreland’s Clinic.  Here, behind closed doors, they reveal their deepest secrets, confront and console one another, and share plenty of laughs. But how will they cope when a new crisis strikes? 

Kritters Thoughts:  Three people each are confronting different issues that have the ability to take a person to their knees and each of them do and must seek help to overcome each of the things they are dealing with.  

I am so thankful that the author does not start the book in the clinic, but instead before each character goes there and gives each of the character a back story and some depth.  This definitely created a longer book, but I am so thankful for those moments.  I loved that these people would never have interacted without being introduced at the clinic and from there they are linked and will impact each other for a long time.  It was interesting to read how even though they were all at rock bottom, they could help each other.

I loved the prologue, but it absolutely set me up to think a lot of negative thoughts - knowing that someone wasn't going to make it to the end was so hard to read.  I was definitely surprised as to who it was, but it was an interesting surprise.  

This is my first Sarah Rayner read, although I have her other books on my shelf - I am going to have to pick them up soon.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from St. Martin's Press.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
