Lisa Unger "Beautiful Lies"

Recommendations  from my book club.

Lisa Ungers story "Beautiful Lies" grabbed me with its intrigue and kept in suspense until the last page. This is a fascinating story of the life of Kew Ridley Jones, an ordinary woman, who became famous all over the country after she snatched a toddler under the wheels of a truck. This event made her a star of various "talk shows" and "heroine of the day." But her popularity turned against her, Ridley receives a note stating that she is not the one that she used to think of herself. Trying to find out the truth, the heroine falls into a maze of innuendo and mystical events, and with every step the truth about her past shocks the woman more and more. She is tormented by a question: Is her whole life was just a farce, just a beautiful lie?

Each person creates her/his life and destiny; every minute of our life is unique and can not be "re-played" again or perhaps it can be? May be you will find an answer to this in some other book.
