A woman at Blackwell's bookshop in Oxford recommended it to me and I remember looking at the cover a bit suspicious as it looked just like one of those books I wouldn't read. Then I read the back page synopsis and got quite intrigued:
We don't want to tell you what happens in the this book... This is the story of two women. Their lives collide one fateful day, and one of them has to make a terrible choice. Two years later, they meet again...It's a rather bold statement to add to a back page, but it had me and still has me. The book makes you wonder how much a life is worth and what you and I can do to save a life, and when we can't. The book also tells you that most important things in life are usually the small things such as love and empathy. Give and you shall receive.
