Image of The Daughter She Used To Be

Though the title suggests the story is focused on one woman, it’s her family and friends that make this story rich. The constant action allows the book to fly by. The secondary story lines emphasize the overall theme of the book, that there are many sides to every story.

Bernadette comes from a family of cops and her allegiance has always been to her father and his way of life. But when a shooting takes the life of one of her brothers, she starts to view the justice system in a new way. Instead of getting irate and demanding the suspect be put to death, she tries to look at the situation from other perspectives. In the midst of her grief, she gains a new lease on life.
