Title - THE REST OF HER LIFE
Author -LAURA MORIARTY
Publisher - ALLEN & UNWIN
Description - The Rest of Her Lifeis a luminous, compassionate, and provocative look at how mothers and daughters with the best intentions can be blind to the harm they do to one another. Leigh is the mother of high-achieving, popular high school senior Kara. Their relationship is already strained when, in a moment of carelessness, Kara makes a mistake that ends in tragedy -- the effects of which not only divide Leigh's family, but polarise the entire community. Leigh recounts the events of the summer that follows the tragedy, grappling with the hard reality of what her daughter has done and the devastating consequences of her actions on the family of another teenage girl in town, all while struggling to protect Kara in the face of rising public outcry. Like the best works of Jane Hamilton, Jodi Picoult, and Alice Sebold, Laura Moriarty's The Rest of Her Lifeis a novel of complex moral dilemma, filled with nuanced characters and a page-turning plot that makes readers ask themselves, "What would I do?" "In this compelling story of female relationships mothers, sisters, daughters and best friends Moriarty's characters grab readers the minute they enter the story, and recollections of their vivid personalities will linger long after the last page. Well-written, convincing and impossible to put down." -- Kirkus Reviews"Laura Moriarty writes with unflinching honesty and clear-eyed compassion about the worst fear that parents can imagine.' Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the OceanLaura Moriarty was awarded the George Bennett Fellowship for Creative Writing at Phillips Exeter Academy. Her first book, The Centre of Everything, was hailed by the New York Times as a warm, beguiling book full of hard-won wisdom'.
