In the aftermath of a fatal texting and driving accident, a mother and daughter must come to terms with the real meaning of forgiveness.

Liz Johnson single-handedly raised an exemplary daughter. Jessica is an honor-student, track star, and all-around good kid. So how could that same teenager be responsible for the death of the high school’s beloved football coach? This is Texas, where high school football ranks right up there with God, so while the legal battle wages, the public deals its own verdict.

Desperate for help, Liz turns to a lawyer whose affection she once rejected and attempts to play nice with her ex-husband. Jessica faces her angry peers and her own demons as she awaits a possible prison sentence for an accident she doesn’t remember.

A tragic, emotional, ultimately uplifting story, Blind Turn is a natural book club pick.

Review by Linda

Blind Turn by Cara Sue Achterberg is a fabulous, powerful book about life. The plot revolves around a deadly car accident that impacted a young girl, her family’s lives, and also the small town she lives in.

The book is very well written and I loved the attention to detail and how it connects to real-life issues.

The characters were described so well they became very vivid in my head whilst reading. Liv, the single-mother of the driver of the car would do anything for her daughter, her dad Jake, Kevin the lawyer who was a genuine all-around good guy, and Jessica a normal teenager who had to grow up quickly when the accident happened.

The story held my attention and also touched all my emotions. It was so lovely the whole way through but Jessica’s speech brought me to tears, it was brilliant!

This is a definite page-turner with so much packed into the storyline and so many incredible characters.

This was an excellent read about how life can change in an instance, how it can impact numerous people, but also how it can be overcome. Well done to author Cara Sue Achterberg for one of the best reads I have had. This is a book that I will be recommending to all my family and friends and I would like to read more from this author in the future.
