One woman runs from her past, as another tries to escape her future; a young boy holds close a terrible secret, and a father does everything he can to protect him.

Two cars collide on a foggy highway, and a woman dies. The survivor, Isabelle, is left to pick up the pieces, not only of her own life, but of the lives of the devastated husband and fragile son that the other woman, April, has left behind. Together, they try to solve the puzzle of where April was running to, and why. As these three lives intersect, questions arise: How well do we really know those we love – and how do we forgive the unforgivable?

In the hands of Caroline Leavitt, nothing is quite as it seems; Pictures of You is a riveting mystery and a wholly satisfying read.
