Who can you trust if not the ones you love? That is the question at the heart of Family Pictures , an emotional, page-turning story about what it means to be a family from New York Times bestselling author, JANE GREEN

"Green's novels consistently deliver believable, accessible, heartfelt, often heartwarming stories about real people, problems, and feelings."- Redbook

Sylvie and Maggie are two women living on opposite coasts with children about to leave the nest for school. Both are in their forties with husbands who travel more than either would like. The looming emptiness of their respective homes has left them feeling anxious and lonely, needing their husbands to be home now more than ever. It isn't until Eve, Sylvie's daughter, happens to befriend Maggie's daughter that the similarities between these two women become shockingly real. A huge secret hasremained well hidden for years until now-and their lives will be blown apart as dark truths from the past come to the surface. Can these two women learn to forgive, for the sake of their children...and for themselves?

Found this book a bit too predictable. None of the plot twists were a surprise really, and the coincidences were a bit hard to believe.

I found the writing in the first few chapters somewhat ordinary but soon got hooked on an unexpected plot twist. Although not a literary classic, this is a good summer read.

excellent book! I've read all of Jane Green's books (except one) so far, and I'd have to say, this is one of the best! Love how it is written in chapters from each characters' perspective...

It was interesting to read about the events in this novel from the different perspectives of the various characters in the book. Jane Green did a good job portraying complex issues and difficult circumstances. I'll be looking for more of her books.

Great read! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I read it because I enjoyed Jane Green's Another Piece of My Heart so much and I was not disappointed!.
