Lissa Randall is an intelligent and promising young woman. Her future is hopeful, until her mother is killed in an automobile accident. Lissa can not get back in the driver's seat again. She blames herself for her mother's death. Her life has come to a standstill. Lissa does not go away to college as her friends do, her life just basically stops.
Ev Mac Allister's driving school seems good enough for her to relearn how to be comfortable to drive, but Lissa is in a whole lot more then just learning to drive again. She slowly learns to put her life back into perspective. Lissa comes to terms with her mother's accident by trusting and listening to Ev.
Ev has several secrets that start to unravel. He is a wonderful caring man towards Lissa, but was he always that way? Ev and his wife befriend young Lissa and are there for her as she struggles with thoughts of suicide.
This is a deeply powerful book. I gained so much more then is on the pages. If I was a betting person I would guess that this book will keep you up all night just so you can find out how the book ends (at least that is what happened to me).
