For ten years Emily Dobbs and Marcie Carter have been the closest of friends. They've raised their kids together, shared joy and heartache, exchanged neighborhood gossip over tea. But when Marcie's son, now a college freshman sports star, is arrested for date rape, the bond between the families could be shattered forever. s the Carters try to deal with the unthinkable, Emily discovers her daughter has been hiding a terrible secret...a secret that threatens the futures of both families. Recently divorced, Emily struggles to keep it all together--to support her terrified daughter, to maintain her friendship with Evan's mother and to have faith in the detective who could change all of their lives. When things seem darkest, both she and Marcie discover that sometimes the first step toward a better future is mending fences with the past.

This story was a real eye opener. Rape,is a horrible crime,generally against women.As parents, we have a duty, to teach our children right from wrong, not only to have respect for ourselves, but to have respect for other people."We are responsible for our own actions".so it is said, "yes we are" should be the right answer.In this story we have a young man who was brought up by a father who has no respect for women,including his wife and daughter.A mother, who disliked her treatment but kept quiet,to keep peace and harmony in the home.There is clearly one message here for a child,which of course doesn't always turn children into rapist.
