Review: What A Mother Knows is a compelling new novel by Leslie Lehr. Imagine having a car accident so severe your road to recovery includes a medically induced coma and memory loss. That’s exactly what happens to Michelle Mason. She doesn’t remember the past few years of her life, let alone the accident or that she had a passenger in the car. Her traveling companion was 19-year-old Noah, an up and coming musician who was tragically killed. As Michelle tries to piece together what happened, she is further plagued with a desperation to find her missing daughter Nikki.
Final Take: 3/5
