Praise for What a Mother Knows

“A missing daughter, a lost memory, and a desperate need to find the truth propel Lehr’s achingly moving suspense drama. Dark and unsettling, but with a ray of hope like a splash of light, and a knockout ending you wont see coming.”
—Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You

“Imagine your worst nightmares coming true—a fatal accident, a missing daughter, a distant husband—and then finding out you might be at fault. In her provocative page-turner, Leslie Lehr illustrates how sometimes the right decisions can lead to unintended life-altering consequences. What a Mother Knows is a poignant, powerful novel.”
—Jillian Medoff, bestselling author of I Couldn’t Love You More and Hunger Point

About the Book

Michelle Mason can’t remember that night, that drive, that horrible crash that killed someone. She can’t even remember the last six months. All she knows is she’s being held responsible, and her sixteen year old daughter is missing. Putting her shattered life back together demands a strength Michelle doesn’t know if she has.

With a shaky marriage, pending lawsuit, and troubling flashbacks churning her world, Michelle throws herself into finding he daughter Nikki. They say that Nikki is the one person who might know what really happened that night, but Michelle can’t think about anything but bringing her home. The deeper she digs, the more confusing the line becomes between what happened and what matters. A poignant story of the unshakable bond between mother and child, this novel explores the fragile skin of memory and the powerful pull of love.
