If I’d had any idea what those words would mean to me, to my mother and daughter, I’d have fled California without looking back.
While driving a rural road, Hannah Shire and her aging mother, who suffers from dementia, stop to help a man at the scene of a car accident. The man whispers mysterious words in Hannah’s ear. Soon people want to kill Hannah and her mother for what they “know.” Even law enforcement may be involved.
The two women must flee for their lives. But how does Hannah hide her confused mother? Carol just wants to listen to her pop music, wear her favorite purple hat, and go home. And if they turn to Hannah’s twentyseven- year-old daughter, Emily, for help, will she fall into danger as well?
Pressed on all sides, Hannah must keep all three generations of women in her family alive. Only then does she learn the threat is not just to her loved ones, but the entire country . . .
I absolutely love this book! From a somewhat boring life ... Hannah and the two women she loves the most are thrust into the middle of a dangerous and uncertain future. Little did Hannah know at the time, but she has been forced into a situation that could affect the entire nation.
I loved Hannah's mother the most. Suffering from dementia, she was a constant delight in the way she expressed herself. I loved the way she dressed, the way she danced, and the way she always spoke exactly what was on her mind. We could all take lessons from Carol.
Trying to keep her mom and her daughter safe, Hannah tries to stay one step ahead of the people hoping to make her permanently silent.
A great mystery, devotion to family, and some great humor in spite of the danger, this is a great read that I highly recommend.
