The novel’s title comes from William Wordsworth's poem about grief. I think it was a story about media morality as much as domestic violence and PST.A journalist who made her mark with an article about an abused woman who murdered her husband, years later seeks out the now-deceased woman's daughter and hands over to her all the notes for the story.

One of the first books I read by Anita Shreve, and one of my favorites. She has fearlessly woven an intimate story of a mother and daughter running for there life. This story is compelling with unique, perspectives and insights on domestic violence. These characters, will stay with you for a very long time.

Early literary influences include having read Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton when she was a junior in high school (a short novel she still claims as one of her favorites) and everything Eugene O'Neill ever wrote while she was a senior (to which she attributes a somewhat dark streak in her own work). ...more
