Goodreads:  Early one morning, Lidia Raven, mother of teenage twins, awakens to the sound of a sputtering airplane engine in the distance. After she and her girls miraculously survive the crash that destroys their home, they’re taken in by Lidia’s friend, Polly, a neighbor who lives alone on a sprawling estate. But Lidia has other problems. Her husband has left her for another man, she’s lost her job, and she fears more bad news is on the way when she discovers a connection between her and Tina Calderara, the pilot who crashed into her home. In the months following the crash, Lidia plunges into a mystery that upends every aspect of her life, forcing her to rethink everything she thinks she knows. 

Kritters Thoughts:  A plane crashes into a home and the people in the home survive, but the pilot does not.  On the same day, water is discovered on the moon and although it may not seem that these two relate, but the author does an interesting connection between these two events.  

A family drama with a little historical mixed in.  Lidia is a mother of teenage twin girls who are about to start applying for college and her husband recently left her for another man and she is still dealing with this change in life.  So when the accident happens in her home, she absolutely thought this was a low point, but I loved seeing her find that a low point can have high points in it.  

As I said in my review on Tuesday, that book and this book had a great full cast of characters.  Each character had their own story, but also fit nicely into the big story.  It was a shorter book, but I didn't feel like it was missing anything.

I loved this debut novel and will definitely keep my eye out for her next one.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from Booksparks PR.  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.


  1. What a cool premise and I am interested to see how the authors tied-in the water on the moon!
