After a series of destructive and dangerous choices made by his wife, Peter Webster becomes a single parent of Rowan, their young daughter. Many years go by before there is any contact with his ex-wife.
It seems that the members of this broken family will never be complete and whole, until they come full circle and deal with their past. A large part of the story is about dealing with alcoholism and the devastating impact that it has on everyone in the family.
This is the first book I have read by Anita Shreve, and I was pleasantly surprised. I look forward to reading other novels by this author as soon as I get the chance.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary audio book copy of Rescue from Hachette Books, in exchange for my honest review.
