The Some of it All


Pregnant and alone, Elizabeth leaves her childhood home at eighteen in search of something better for her and for her unborn baby. She finds herself in Rapid Falls Montana. She meets a boy, she falls in love, she lives happily ever after…or at least that is what was supposed to happen. She did meet the boy. She did fall in love. But she did not find her happily ever after. Caught in a loveless marriage with a man who has given her everything, but now wants to leave her with nothing, she conceives a plan that will end with his life or hers. 

 

Meadow watched her life fall apart at the hands of another. Now, she and her husband are in Montana trying to make their childless marriage work. In walks Lizzy, Liz, Elizabeth, Beth, who has as many secrets as she does names. But Meadow has secrets too, the depths of which are far deeper than anything Elizabeth could have imagined. As Elizabeth tries to use Meadow as an escape from her own life, Meadow has plans of her own, plans that will send them both spiraling into an abyss neither could fathom.

 

Meanwhile, Val, Elizabeth’s mother, has lost her husband and three of her eight children. She waves to their ghosts from her front window each night. She’s had a lot of loss, her counselor tells her. But when she turns on the TV one night to find her estranged daughter, Elizabeth, on the screen in critical condition—her husband dead and her two children missing—Val’s mind tumbles back to the baby she lost so many years before…her first loss and greatest love. Now, she’s caught in an endless struggle: is she the mother of the woman fighting for her life or the mother of the daughter Elizabeth killed seventeen years before?
