Not the first sunday

By Anita Shreve

First of all I listened to this book on CD and it was brilliant. Produced by Hachette Audio it was read by 14 different voice actors, each highlighting different characters in the story. This made it almost like a radio play and the narrative really flew by. I will be avidly looking for more books by the same group.
The story was also quite moving, focusing on a small sex scandal at a private New England boarding school and all the horrific repercussions. From the victim who wasn’t and the perpetrators who were; and the lies, abuse, cover-ups, and conspiracies, one innocent event literally destroys many lives. A good reminder that our behaviors have consequences.
