About the Book:
When trust is violated, can it ever be recovered?
Alison Jacobs needs brain surgery and places ultimate trust in her sister’s husband, Grant Kaplan, a world-renowned neurosurgeon and expert in treating her condition. But Grant is hiding a dark secret which threatens the outcome: an addiction to prescription pills. As Alison struggles to rebuild her life, Grant’s daughter, Sadie, spends more time with a new friend. Frustrated that her parents exclude her from the conversations about her beloved aunt, Sadie makes increasingly risky choices which could endanger not only her, but her entire family.
Alison is also harboring her own secret-an extramarital affair with a woman. Her close call with mortality spurs her to take a closer look at her marriage, explore her newfound sexuality and figure out what she wants for her future. How will she rebuild her life and move forward? Can she find a way to repair her broken relationship with her only sister?
Secrets swirling around drug use and sexual identity must be dealt with in order for the family to learn to trust each other again.
Alison needs brain surgery, and lucky for her, her sister’s husband, Grant, is a well-respected neurosurgeon up to the task.
No one knows this but Grant has a pill addiction. Sadie, Grant’s teen daughter is also teetering on the edge. She’s taking risks she definitely shouldn’t.
Alison also has secrets, including an affair.
Will this family come together or be torn apart?
Better to Trust had my attention rapt. It delves into some important issues and the characters are complex and likable. Overall, this is a page turner and book in which I was deeply invested.
I received a gifted copy.
