Faultlines Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
It's the phone call every parent dreads: in the middle of the night, Sandy Cline learns that her twenty-year-old son, Jordan, has been in a car accident. Her nephew, Travis, was also in the car, along with Travis's girlfriend. All three are alive - but barely. The car was smashed against a tree along a remote and winding road, beautiful but deadly, in their rural Texas Hill Country town.
In the wake of the car crash, the close-knit family is tested like never before. Jenna, Travis's mother, blames Jordan - as well as her sister, Sandy - after reports surface that Jordan had been driving. As the young adults struggle to survive, tension between their parents escalates. But when trust is broken and a shocking family secret is exposed, it creates a perfect storm of harrowing consequences. Rumors in the small town spread like wildfire. When details of the accident are questioned, Sandy and Jenna wonder if their family has been destroyed beyond repair.
As always, there's much more to the story...if the family is to survive, they will have to come together to confront the terrible truth and overcome their pain. But are some betrayals unforgivable?

Jordan and Travis were cousins and best friends, and so were their mothers who were close as sisters could be. Everything shattered when the boys were involved in a car crash, but only one of them survived, and the one left was blamed. A sudden death in the family can make or break the ties that bind. Add to that another complication from outside the family, and the situation gets testier. The question that each of the ones involve face: do I make or do I break? In the throes of grief, this is not a question that one contemplates upon, and the consequences of actions can be dire and irreversible. Once again, spot-on writing from Barbara Taylor Sissel, simple writing rich in emotions; held me captive all throughout.
What a powerful novel! The author takes the reader through the lives of three families, all of whom get that phone call in the middle of the night no parent should get: your child has been in a car accident and is being taken to the hospital. What they find is all three are alive, barely. Somehow they survived skidding and then hitting a tree head on at a high rate of speed.
In the end, Jordan lives after being brought back and having an operation. He has internal and external scars. Travis, his cousin and best friend, passes away a few days later. Travis' girlfriend is in an irreversible coma. The question? Who was driving? Who is to "blame" for such a tragedy. They were all drinking, they all chose to get in the car. The one constant is everyone knows Michelle was in the back wearing a seatbelt. The boys were up front, neither wearing a seatbelt. As they learn more about the accident, blame is placed on one of the boys as versus the other. Hence, families are brought together, torn apart, are mended or slowly stitched back together, and even expanded. At the heart is one young man and the issue of who was at fault. In the end, lives will forever be changed.
The author takes the reader through an up and down and inside out journey. You may figure some aspects out early and others not until the end. There are surprises you will never expect. In the end, the most one can hope for is some form of healing and peace.
"Faultlines," is a strong novel any reader who likes realistic suspense will want to read. The characters are so well written they can be your neighbors. The storyline is so enthralling you will not be able to put this novel down. Trust me. I read late into the night. It was definitely worth it.
A heartbreaking, heartwarming, amazing read, "Faultlines," brings reality to you and doesn't let you go...

My only regret is even at the end with
Jordies speech, there was no mention of the girl involved. Just a mention for her mother would have been sufficient. Cos in my mind she does recover. Other than that a great book. Will find another book by same author. Many thanks
