Before and AfterBook - 1992
The Reisers were a typical American family. Two loving parents. Two bright teenagers. A lovely home in a small New England town. But then one day the doorbell rang, bringing news of a shattering crime that would turn their son into a stranger and tear their lives in half. As the case unfolds, parent is pitted against parent, brother against sister, family against community. Before and After is a novel that dares us to ask how well we, as families, really know each other and ourselves...dares us to see that one event can change everything...dares us to confront the fine--and shattering--line between guilt and innocence, between love and rage, between before and after.
