Doctor Julie Walker has just signed her divorce papers when she receives news that her younger sister, Heather, has gone into labor. Though theirs is a strained relationship, Julie sets out for the hospital to be at her sister's side - no easy task since the streets of San Francisco are filled with commotion. Today is also the day that Julie will find herself at the epicenter of a violent standoff in which she is forced to examine both the promising and painful parts of her past - her Southern childhood; her romance with her husband, Tom; her estrangement from Heather; and the shattering incident that led to her greatest heartbreak.

When I read that this novel took place in one single day, I wasn't sure I'd like it. But it covers more than one day; Julie, the protagonist, thinks back to many things that have happened in her life, so there is a lot of filling in of the story of her life and those around her. I had a little trouble adjusting to the jumping around bits, but after I got used to it, I got really caught up in the stories. Much is unanswered at the end of this book, but much is also answered. Kind of like life...

I thought it was ok only. Read it on a trip when I only wanted to carry paperbacks.
