Its a spit second decision that haunted his entire life, with the effect goes as far as his younger generation and a co-worker. How amazing Kim Edwards has written a story of regret and redemption. We'll say that story such as this, would never happen to us, nor have we heard of such around us. Perhaps that is true, but everyone of us are haunted by some kind of regret that we've hold dear to our heart. The little secret we do not know how to make others understand, even to the rest of the world, it is as simple as sharing it at the right place and the right time.
So imagine, if Dr. David Henry has told his wife Norah, about the wrong decision he'd make and his regret on it, things would be so different. A life time spent on regret and anger, and a life time of misunderstanding of thinking love has lost between the husband and wife, and a life time of regret having the kid thinking the father never did love him, and a life time passed as that.
I was heart broken through out the period of reading this book, but I love the irony of life, and that, none of us can escape of it one way or the other.
A lovely and meaningful read indeed.
