SAY THE WORD by Jeannine Garsee

Wow!  This was a tough one to put down!  The story and characters just sucked me in and held me until the very last page.

Shawna goes to a private school, gets terrific grades, and has already been accepted to her first choice college.  It's her senior year, and she knows exactly where her life is headed.  It comes as a surprise to most people when they learn that Shawna was an innocent seven year old when her mother left her behind to run off with her female lover.  Ever since, Shawna has been raised by her doctor father and nannies or housekeepers.

When a late night call brings news that her mother has had a massive stroke and isn't expected to live, Shawna feels her perfect life spiraling out of control.  She heads to New York City to pay her final respects to her dying mother and finds herself thrust into life with her mother's "wife" and the woman's two children.  What no one expects is that secrets will soon be revealed that will change their lives forever.

SAY THE WORD by Jeannine Garsee is an emotional roller-coaster that takes readers into the inner workings of two families and their heartbreaking turmoil.  Readers will experience anger, joy, stunning surprises, and even humor as they get to know Shawna and her family, friends, and enemies.
