The Rest of Her Life by Laura Moriaty Fiction (2007)

January 17, 2008

In a moment, a tragic accident can change the life of a small Kansas town forever.

Leigh was sure after her daughter struck and killed a 16-year-old girl that the family would be forced to move to another city to avoid the hate and judgment of everyone in town.

Relying on her own childhood experience as a guide for how to parent her children and relate to others, Leigh tried her beset to protect her high-achieving, popular daughter from certain ruin.

This Lawrence author explores how mothers and daughter with the best intentions can be blind to the harm they do to one another. It is a page-turner that may make the reader think, "what would I do?"

¢ This book and many others are available in both Spanish and English as well as book and audio form at the De Soto branch of the Johnson County Library. The book is also available on audio tape.
