The Things We Wish Were True by Marybeth Whalen. Published by Lake Union

Sycamore Glen, North Carolina is a lovely little town filled with lovely little homes and lovely little families, just like anywhere else. And just like anywhere else there are secrets behind the doors of those little homes. Sometimes it’s just easier to pretend that everything is fine and just go with the flow. That’s pretty much what happens in Sycamore grove until that day  at the local community pool, when a small accident has far reaching repercussions . That day everything changes, secrets will be out, lives destroyed and rebuilt. Is it better to forgive, forget and move on or just pretend none of it ever even happened. Whalen is a formidable writer who knows the human psyche so well it’s almost scary. This is a book that will resonate with readers for a long time
