I have been browsing Barnes and Noble for my next novel to read, and I found this incredible book. It sounds like such a page turner! It seems to be about two neighboring families in a suburban town, the friendship between their kids, tragedy, marriage, and the power of forgiveness. I can't wait to give it a read.
As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for Ask Again, Yes is:
"Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, rookie cops in the NYPD, live next door to each other outside the city. What happens behind closed doors in both houses—the loneliness of Francis’s wife, Lena, and the instability of Brian’s wife, Anne, sets the stage for the explosive events to come.
Ask Again, Yes is a deeply affecting exploration of the lifelong friendship and love that blossoms between Kate Gleeson and Peter Stanhope, born six months apart. One shocking night their loyalties are divided, and their bond will be tested again and again over the next 40 years. Luminous, heartbreaking, and redemptive, Ask Again, Yes reveals the way childhood memories change when viewed from the distance of adulthood—villains lose their menace and those who appeared innocent seem less so. Kate and Peter’s love story, while haunted by echoes from the past, is marked by tenderness, generosity, and grace."
