Summary:

How far would you go to protect your family? To protect your children? How many lies would you tell? Would you dare to admit the darkest truths - even to yourself? Jeanne Cross is an ordinary suburban wife and mother with a seemingly "perfect" life when Ali Mather arrives on the scene, breaking all the rules and breaking hearts. Almost against her will, Jeanne is drawn to this powerfully seductive woman, a fascination that soon begins to infect Jeanne's husband as well as their teenage son. Though their friendship seems unlikely and even dangerous to their mutual acquaintances, Ali and Jeanne are connected by deep emotional needs, vulnerabilities, and long-held secrets that Ali has been privately recording in her diary. The diary also holds the key to something darker. Though she can't prove it, Ali is convinced someone has been entering her house when she is not at home - and not with the usual intentions. What this burglar wants is nothing less than a piece of Ali's soul.

    It was easy to listen to and did keep you wanting to hear more. The ending struck me as though the author had written a different ending (that made more sense) and then decided to add a twist to it that didn't quite follow the rest of the story.

    This started off really well. It had an immediacy which I found very compelling and I was really taken with the characters and the story line, but then I felt that the ending was rather implausible; so having started on a high note, it ended on something of a low one... Having said that, it was very well written and the narrator did an excellent job of bringing all the characters to life.
