Let me say at the beginning that this book is a page-turner, so I'm not going to give it a bad review. But I do have an issue with the basic premise of the story.
A young mother, Susanna, runs away with her infant son (named Tyler) when custody is awarded to her ex-husband. Susanna had been at a disadvantage in court because her ex-husband was an attorney and had money. He successfully argued that he and his new wife could give Tyler a better home because they were financially, as well as emotionally, more stable than the child's mother. It's impossible not to be sympathetic with Susanna. She sacrificed her own education to put her husband through law school, and one day when she excitedly hurried home to tell him she was pregnant, she found him in bed with another woman.
My problem with the premise of the story is, it seems the author doesn't even question the mother's decision to run away with her child. I agree the judge's ruling was unjust and...
I loved this book, extremely interesting to me. Won't get into details, many have done that some time ago. I have questions! POSS SPOILER ALERT ~~ it seemed ar the end, there were unanswered questions, for me anyway, such as how was Adam supposed to do w/o Kim, esp when his sister, he was so close to, just died in such dramatic circumstances? She was nuttier than a fruitcake, but that wasn't really made clear at all til the end. He had so recently been deeply depressed over losing his fam in a terrible accident. Did they somehow stay in contact? What happened to the cat and kittens? Did Susanne and Linc get married? There were a couple more things, but now I can't rem them! It did seem the whole story came to an abrupt ending, like Diane was in a rush to get it over, that's how it struck me. I give this 4 stars because of the frustration I feel.
When Susanna Miller loses custody of her 11-month old son Tyler to her ex-husband Jim and his new wife Peggy, she is afraid that her life is over.
From the moment she first discovered that Jim was cheating on her with Peggy, right after she discovered she was pregnant, she has been in free fall, descending into the darkness that will soon become her life.
Her best friend Linc Sebastian, who lived next door to her in childhood and has now become her lover and her support system, believes that they can somehow make it anyway.
But what Susanna does next will change all of their lives.
She has planned ahead, and the morning of the day she was supposed to turn over Tyler, she is on the run, with a new identity, some cash, and a plan. Her journey takes her across country from Boulder, Colorado, to Annapolis, Maryland, where she slowly begins anew as Kimberly Stratton...
