This book beautiful and heart rendering. It dives into the lives of two neighbors Kate and Peter, who have a bond of being born close together and living right next door to each other. Both their father’s are police officers but behind closed doors their lives are very different. Everything changes in one night when the unbelievable happens (not going to say because I don’t want to give too much away). Years later they find each other and build a life together but once again life throws them a curve. I really enjoyed this book although it did take me a few chapters until I really got into the story and then I couldn’t put it down. This story touches so many different emotions and reminds you that everyone has that own problems even if you can’t see them going through it. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Thank you to Simon and Schuster and Scribner for this copy to read and review.
Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, rookie cops in the NYPD, live next door to each other outside the city. What happens behind closed doors in both houses—the loneliness of Francis’s wife, Lena, and the instability of Brian’s wife, Anne, sets the stage for the explosive events to come.
