A seemingly insignificant, careless act can sometimes set tragedy in motion.
Eight-year-old Pearl tries very hard to get things right. Attuned to her mother s brittle moods, she watches over her younger brother while carefully guarding her private passions. But a senseless act of violence at summer camp shatters Pearl s family, and nothing may ever be right again.
In a cooler, greener suburb, Sonia is learning to live alone after the death of her husband, a furniture designer who will soon be commemorated by an exhibition of his work. At the edge of the city, the young sculptor Adam Logan is hoping that his controversial new exhibit will change his fortunes. Connected by grief and longing, and united by a shared goal to create a memorial for the city s lost children, these characters lives become entangled in ways that none could have foreseen.
Combining the intimacy of a family s heartache with the suspense of a thriller, Careless is a gripping, seductive novel about the ties of caring and responsibility that are both formed and broken in today s society and about the resilience of the human psyche."
