Book Title: Hidden
While walking home from work one evening, Jeff Manning is struck by a car and killed. Not one but women fall to pieces at the news: his wife, Claire, and his coworker, Tish. Reeling from her loss, Claire must comfort her grieving son and contend with funeral arrangements, well-meaning family members, and the arrival of Jeff’s estranged brother, her ex-boyfriend, Tim.
With Tish’s coworkers in the dark about her friendship with Jeff outside the office, she volunteers to attend the funeral on the company’s behalf, but only she knows the true risk of inserting herself in the wreckage of Jeff’s life. Told through the three voices of Jeff, Tish, and Claire, Hidden explores the complexity of relationships, the repercussions of our personal choices, and the responsibilities we have to the ones we love.
