Prior to revealing the secret to her children, Olivia must figure out which boy Ben refers to in the confession he left her in his will. While the family attorney searches for the mysterious Rowena Hector whom Ben says holds the answers, Olivia asks her sons to each spend a week with her as she isn’t ready to let go of the past.

What will she do when she discovers the son behind Ben’s secret? Check out this ensemble cast where each family member’s perspective is center stage, discovering along the way who might feel the biggest impact from all the secrets. Welcome to being an honorary member of the Glass family.
The description of “Watching Glass Shatter” is so intriguing. I love books about secrets and it sounds like this one has a whole whack of them! I actually can’t believe I haven’t read it yet. I’ve read some great reviews and have been able to avoid any spoilers. I definitely want to read it before I come across anything that may accidentally give something away.
I’m really looking forward to reading this novel!
