Rating: 4/5

Genre: Thriller

Plot:

M.T. Edvardsson’s A Nearly Normal Family is a gripping legal thriller that forces the reader to consider: How far would you go to protect the ones you love? In this twisted narrative of love and murder, a horrific crime makes a seemingly normal family question everything they thought they knew about their life—and one another.

Eighteen-year-old Stella Sandell stands accused of the brutal murder of a man almost fifteen years her senior. She is an ordinary teenager from an upstanding local family. What reason could she have to know a shady businessman, let alone to kill him?

Stella’s father, a pastor, and mother, a criminal defense attorney, find their moral compasses tested as they defend their daughter, while struggling to understand why she is a suspect. Told in an unusual three-part structure, A Nearly Normal Family asks the questions: How well do you know your own children? How far would you go to protect them?

 

Thoughts:

How far would you go to protect the ones you love ? would you lie under oath or take a knife in hand ?
The story is told from father, daughter and mother's perspective. And the transition between them happens smoothly.
how much one endures for a daughter, or how much one endures for a friend for life, is so beautifully portrayed.
the father's description was a little slow, but that is probably how fathers think.things escalated quickly when the daughters narration started.The mother's caught me with unexpected twists.
A good read.

Quotes:

       “Is there any sort of situation where you can say with certainty that a single person is responsible for what happens? Everything in life is dependent on so many different factors that interact in so many different ways.”
