My choice today is from

Monday, Sunday
Grace Fenton


Laney Secord is an attractive, 32-year-old single mother suffering from the recent loss of her husband. She blames herself for his death, and has been in a state of emotional paralysis ever since. One day, she meets Christopher, a striking 16-year-old boy in the prime of adolescence. He avidly pursues her, yet she knows the attraction she feels for him is wrong. He’s just a teenager after all – what could they have in common?

Laney tries to push him away, becoming more paranoid, feeling that everyone in tiny Plainview, Colorado is watching her, mocking her. She begins a relationship with the boy’s father, Bill, who is more age-appropriate. But he isn’t quite the right match.

The week-long romantic triangle that develops culminates on Sunday, Mother’s Day, changing their lives in ways that none of them could have imagined.

In this beautifully written and compelling novel, author Fenton Grace explores the consequences of flawed choices, the nature of betrayal and forgiveness, and the boundaries of sexual attraction.

“Well-written with a creeping edginess… This story kept me turning the pages in its growing creepiness.” – San Francisco Book Review

“This uncommon love triangle drama is a bold first. Its controversial topic may disturb many readers, but what is literature for? Good literature should provoke our thinking and this novel does that well.” – Portland Book Review


Erin let her off so easily, with so little struggle. “I’m a liar!” Laney wanted to scream. “Don’t believe a word I say. Can’t you see I am falling apart all over again? Just like I did when Jay died. I am the woman who slept with your husband. How can you trust me? How can you talk to me? Are you that blind?
