I liked the book because of the mysterious underpinnings and the family aspects. Lauren and Alex live in a splendid home on Long Island with parents they love. Their father comes from a wealthy family in the middle east and is a poet - Mom brings home the bread. One morning after the couple had a party and the kids had slept in the tree house their Dad had built for them, they discover their mother had been murdered and their father is accused - eventually he is convicted and imprisoned for life at Attica. They are taken to live with their mother's not so cuddly parents, who ship them off to boarding schools. Alex becomes a doctor and is always trying to exonerate his DAD. Lauren is a real estate agent in a relationship with a very patient man and otherwise she's an emotional wreck and clings to her hatred for her father. When Alex goes to Iraq with Drs Without Borders; Lauren, who is very needy when it comes to Alex is distraught, but he goes and is declared missing after an explosion. All these circumstances come together to reactivate the issue of their father's innocence and what really happened and is worth the read to find out what really happened.
