In New York, Franny, a doctor the same age, plans her wedding and tries to resist the urge to run.

Read it now. Thank me later.'Jennifer Weiner, the New York Times bestselling author of Good in Bed and In Her Shoes'Women's Death Row as you have never seen it; hauntingly rich, wise and sharply etched.' James Ellroy'How do we forgive the unforgivable?
