The Whole Golden World
by Kristina Riggle
Expected Publication Date: November 5, 2013
Synopsis from TLC Book Tours

Seventeen-year-old Morgan Monetti shocks her parents and her community with one simple act: She chooses to stand by the man everyone else believes has exploited her—popular high school teacher TJ Hill. Quietly walking across a crowded courtroom to sit behind TJ, and not beside her parents, she announces herself as the adult she believes herself to be.

But her mother, Dinah, wants justice. Dinah is a fighter, and she believes with all her heart and soul that TJ is a man who took advantage of her daughter. He is a criminal who should be brought to justice, no matter what the cost to his family.

Rain, TJ’s wife, is shocked that her handsome, loving, respected husband has been accused of a terrible crime. But has her desperation to start a family closed her eyes to the fault lines in her marriage? And can she face the painful truths about herself and her husband?

Told from the perspectives of these three remarkable women, The Whole Golden World navigates the precarious territory between childhood and adulthood, raising questions about love and manipulation, marriage and motherhood, consent and responsibility. It’s a novel both shocking and unforgettable in its power.

Why I am waiting....
I read and enjoyed Keepsake by the same author and this story looks just as interesting.


  1. Great pick. Thanks for sharing :)

    Happy Wednesday!

  2. Interesting pick, I don't normally read contemporary books but this does sound good.

  3. Sounds really interesting, though not my kind of type.
    Thanks for the comment =)

  4. Coming from a family of teachers, this sounds really interesting. It seems like I'm running across more and more books that are told from multiple perspectives.
