Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1965, the happy Bedloe family is living an ideal, apple-pie existence in Baltimore. Then, in the blink of an eye, a single tragic event occurs that will transform their lives forever--particularly that of seventeen-year-old Ian Bedloe, the youngest son, who blames himself for the sudden "accidental" death of his older brother.

Depressed and depleted, Ian is almost crushed under the weight of an unbearable, secret guilt. Then one crisp January evening, he catches sight of a window with glowing yellow neon, the CHURCH OF THE SECOND CHANCE. He enters and soon discovers that forgiveness must be earned, through a bit of sacrifice and a lot of love.

Review:

"A novel that attests once again to Ms. Tyler's enormous gifts as a writer." The New York Times

Review:

"Captivating.... Compelling.... There is a kind of magic at work in this novel." The Washington Post Book World

Synopsis:

9 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list!
