The Ones We Keep

I am not sure how The Ones We Keep by Bobbie Jean Huff ended up on my TBR and summer reading list, but I am so glad it did. “A quiet lakeside resort in Vermont seems like the perfect summer getaway for Olivia and Harry Somerville and their three young boys. But in a single moment, their idyllic family retreat becomes a mother’s worst nightmare. Returning from a solo hike one afternoon, Olivia learns from a passing stranger that one of her sons has drowned—but not which one. In that moment, Olivia makes a panicked decision that will change her family forever. If she never knows which son has drowned, can Olivia convince herself that none of them have? By shielding herself from reality, can she continue to live in a world where all three boys are still alive?” (Amazon) While it was really sad and hard to believe, I really enjoyed it and cried at the end. It wasn’t a long read and I really liked it.
