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.

Synopsis:

A self-guilt brother, Ian Bedloe, couldn't get over from blaming himself for the sudden death of his older brother, until he discovers the forgiveness can be found from the God.

Synopsis:

9 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list!

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

--THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Captivating . . . . Compelling . . . . There is a kind of magic at work in this novel."

I choose this book for a research paper I'm doing in class. To my surprise I completely enjoyed the book, I doubted my enjoyment due to the 400 pages but I absolutely loved it. Reading about Ian's struggle's and how he sacrifices his carrer and his whole life to raise Lucy's children, Ian is a real hero. I recommend this book to everyone.
