From the award-winning author of The Missing Place in which Littlefield s writing shines ( The Boston Globe ) another gripping exploration of the damage people can do to each other, and the resilience they find in themselves.

A man stands on the Golden Gate Bridge, poised to jump if a woman on the other end of the phone tells him to.

Maris s safe suburban world was shattered the day her daughter was found murdered, presumably at the hands of the young woman s boyfriend. Her marriage crumbling, her routine shattered, Maris walks away from her pampered life as a Bay Area mom the day she receives a call from Ron, father of her daughter s killer. Wracked with guilt over his son s actions (and his own possible contribution to them), he asks Maris a single question: should he jump?

With a man s life in her hands, Maris must decide, perhaps for the first time, what she truly wants. Retribution? Forgiveness? Or something more? Having lost everything, she s finally free to recreate herself without the confining labels of wife, mother, or mourner. But will this shocking offer free her, or destroy her?
