"Ninety-year-old Margaret Riley is content hiding from the world. Stoic and independent, she rarely leaves the Tennessee mountaintop where she lives, finding comfort in the mystery novels that keep her company, that is, until she spots a woman who's moved into the long-empty house across the pond. Jennifer Young is also looking to hide. On the run from her old life, she and her four-year-old son Milo have moved to a quiet town where no one from her past can find her. In Jennifer, Margaret sees both a potential companion in her loneliness and a mystery to be solved. But Jennifer refuses to talk about herself, her son, his missing father, or her past. Frustrated, Margaret crosses more and more boundaries in pursuit of the truth, threatening to unravel the new life Jennifer has so painstakingly created--and reveal some secrets of her own" -- provided by publisher.

I didn't think this book fulfilled the hype. The characters, I thought, were shallow and unbelievable. I couldn't believe a mother would abandon a teenage daughter and run and hide with a much younger son just to escape gossip. She wasn't charged with any crime so why not stay home and make a life for her children? I didn't like either Jennifer or Margaret.

finally finished this novel, at one or 2 points, ready to give up. A rather strange story, makes me not want to check out her other books.
