Women often wear makeup daily to enhance their natural appearance. Mackenzie Cooper uses her make up as a mask to hide a scar from an accident that happened several years ago. She was driving her daughter to a play date and took her eyes off the road for a second. The result was a serious accident which changed Mackenzie’s life in a number of ways. She lost her daughter, her marriage and her career as an up and coming potter. She now lives in Vermont, flying under the radar until her probation is over.
That is, until her friend’s son gets into trouble, causing her to end up back in the public eye. This is a risk that she takes in order to help a friend, but is it worth it?
This book started out slow for me, but I grew to really love the story. It takes a topic like distracted driving and turns it into a story about how all roads, no matter how curvy and rough, lead somewhere. You just have to make it through and sometimes take big risks in order to eventually see redemption.
