Publisher Comments:

Carolyn and Ben Reiser moved to Hyland, New Hampshire with their two children for the comforts of rural life. But when the local police chief comes looking for their seventeen-year-old son Jacob to question him about the brutal murder of his girlfriend, the Reisers' lives begin to unravel.

A compelling story that will capture you in the opening scene and hold you through its shocking conclusion, Before and After is a stunning novel that pits parent against parent, brother against sister, family against community, blood loyalty against law-as "deep questions of loyalty, honesty, and love are forced to the surface in this psychologically riveting tale." Library Journal

Review:

"Powerful...provocative... unabashed, read-until-dawn page-turner." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Masterful...makes us realize just how enigmatic ordinary things like family love and loyalty are. What more can we ask from a work of fiction?" Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"Chilling...Brown writes beautifully and believably, capturing anger, doubt and bewilderment...As gripping as a well-spun murder mystery-only here the mysteries are inside." People

Review:

"Fierce, gripping and painful...a scrupulously observed work of literary fiction." The New York Times

Review:

"Readers will remain immersed in Brown's gripping story... mesmerized by the questions she raises and by the brave, intelligent, compassionate manner in which she deals with them." Publishers Weekly

The story starts with a girl found dead on the side of the road, and then a family has to deal with their son being suspect. It's written so each chapter is a different family memeber dealing with their feeling and trying to decide if Jacob is guilty/innocent or does it even matter. It kept my interest with some surprises.
