It's 1995, and Louise Shapiro has left California to start a new life in rural Michigan with her husband, Richard, and their daughter, Molly. Within weeks, an explosion destroys the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, leaving innocent civilians dead and maimed. As the accusations and conspiracy theories proliferate--about Arabs, Jews, Christians, the FBI, the government--Louise discovers startling secrets about her neighbors, her colleagues, and even her own husband. Can she live in a town where most of the residents are members of the Michigan Militia? Can she work in a school where her students consider homosexuality the work of Satan? Whom can she trust? Em, the local Wiccan? The charismatic Unitarian minister Ames Wye? Her troubled student, Parker Rosenkrantz?--From inside front cover.

It's an interesting premise, but the husband turns into such an amazing jerk that it was completely unrealistic that any woman would stay with him. When even talented authors make such glaring narrative mistakes it makes me stop reading. It also didn't pass the smell test that he was this great guy before, but then a patient harms herself (he's a shrink) and he falls to pieces and turns into a right wing scumbag who ignores his family. Where's an editor when you need one? This one fails. One star.
