Book Giveaway: What a Mother Knows

9 comments



Prize-winning author, screenwriter, and essayist Leslie Lehr is giving away one copy of her recently-released novel, What a Mother Knows.

From the press release:

An unsettling, emotional and suspenseful novel of the unshakable bonds of motherhood, in which Michelle Mason not only loses her memory after a deadly car crash, but can't find her 16-year-old daughter, the one person who may know what happened that day. But the deeper Michelle digs, the more she questions the innocence of everyone, even herself.

A dramatic portrayal of the fragile skin of memory, What a Mother Knows is about finding the truth that can set love free.

Read the prologue and I'm hooked! I'd love to win a copy - thanks for the giveaway!
Looks great! Thanks for the chance to win.
I love "fragile skin of memory." So much of what I write has to do with just that. Can't wait to read this book.
The idea of not being able to find one's daughter is absolutely painful. The prologue, however, makes the book enticing. Looking forward to it.
Oooooh, this looks good!
this looks like a great book! i can't imagine not being able to find my daughter. i shall read it with kleenex in hand.
Please let me read more!I want to know what happens.
I so want to read it! And I think I am going to have to read some of her other work too. Love finding new books to read!
I'm intrigued! Pick me to win. :)
