In Lehr's latest novel, Michelle Mason can’t remember the day that changed her life: that drive, that horrible crash that left her in a coma for months. All she knows is that she’s being held responsible for killing the other person in her car: Noah Butler, a rising rock star who she barely knew. Not only has Michelle lost her memory, her daughter, 16-year-old Nikki, has disappeared since the accident.
Michelle throws herself into searching for Nikki. But she deeper she digs, the more she begins to question the innocence of everyone, even herself. Who was Noah, and why was he in her car? What caused the crash? Where is Nikki—and could she hold the key to what really happened that day?
Recalling S. J. Watson’s Before I Go to Sleep and Juliette Fay’s Shelter Me, What a Mother Knows is a thrilling portrayal of the fragile skin of memory. Set against the glittering lights of Hollywood, it hurtles toward a shattering revelation that reflects just how far we go to protect the ones we love.
