In the pre-dawn hours of a summer day, a carful of post-wedding revelers hits and kills a young girl on a dark country road. The accident reverberates throughout the lives of the driver (under the influence) who was driving without headlights and never saw the girl, the front seat passenger (also under the influence) who did see the girl in time but failed to point her out to the driver, the rear seat passengers, and the bride who let them leave her wedding reception knowing they were in no state to travel.  This nuanced novel follows a motley group of flawed human characters into the subsequent 25 years of their lives, with careful and convincing attention to the subtle and not-so-subtle impacts on their relationships, work and life choices.  Check Our Catalog
