Imagine waking up in the local drunk-tank to find out that in your latest blackout, you killed two people with your car. Imagine what it would be like going to prison for that crime. Imagine trying to put together the pieces of your life when you are released. After years and years of living with the guilt of what you’ve done and trying to redeem yourself, imagine finding out that you may not have killed those two people after all. How would this information change everything that you have done and believed about yourself? How would it change the decisions you made? Blame, (Picador, $15) by Michelle Huneven, is a thought-provoking story of guilt and redemption, of love and belonging.
