About the Book

Bird in Hand

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of ORPHAN TRAIN comes a novel about the choices we make, how they shape our lives, and how they can change them forever.

Four people, two marriages, one lifelong friendship: Everything is about to change.

It was dark. It was raining. It was just an accident. On the drive home from a rare evening out, Alison collides with another car running a stop sign, and --- just like that --- her life turns upside down. 

When she calls her husband from the police station, his accusatory tone reveals cracks in their relationship she’d never noticed were there. Now she notices everything. And she begins to realize that the life she carefully constructed for herself is as tenuous as a house of cards. Exquisitely written, powerful and thrilling, BIRD IN HAND is a novel about love and friendship and betrayal, and about the secrets we tell ourselves and each other.
