What A Mother Knows by Leslie Lehr
An unsettling, emotional and suspenseful novel of the unshakable bonds of motherhood, in which Michelle Mason not only loses her memory after a deadly car crash, but can't find her 16-year-old daughter, the one person who may know what happened that day. But the deeper Michelle digs, the more she questions the innocence of everyone, even herself. A dramatic portrayal of the fragile skin of memory, What a Mother Knows is about finding the truth that can set love free.
A fantastic book filled with suspense and mystery! I couldn't figure out what happened to the daughter and this is the kind of book I love... one that keeps me guessing! Comatose Michelle awakes and after months in rehabilitation she is released to go home. She has very little memory of the accident or anything leading up to it, not even the fact that she had a passenger and that he was killed. Lawsuits have been filed against Michelle by the victim's family and by the automaker.
Michelle is expecting her daughter, Nikki, to fly in to see her but all questions she has goes unanswered or are answered falsely until finally she learns the truth. Her daughter is missing and has been for months. She contacts the police dept. to check on the missing persons her husband had filed only to find he lied, there was never a report filed. There are many other things she discovers as each day passes, not only has her husband lied again and again but he has also forced their son to lie. It takes months for Michelle to uncover his deceptions. Her search for Nikki will not end until she finds out the truth of what happened.
There are many twists and turns to this story that will keep you glued to the book! An amazing story!
