Two neighborhood families seem to live a quiet suburban life when a number of events bring their worlds together and allow them to find connection beyond what they ever imagined. Given that I am completely obsessed with books that are driven by the interplay between intriguing, albeit universal, characters, I devoured this book in one weekend.

“This book will most likely be my favorite of the year! Dani Shapiro weaves together two families’ lives, telling their stories and secrets in nonlinear time. Between the gorgeous writing and perfect plotting, I didn’t want this to end.”

Signal Fires opens on a summer night in 1985. Three teenagers have been drinking. One of them gets behind the wheel of a car, and, in an instant, everything on Division Street changes. Each of their lives, and that of Ben Wilf, a young doctor who arrives on the scene, is shattered. For the Wilf family, the circumstances of that fatal accident will become the deepest kind of secret, one so dangerous it can never be spoken.
