In her fourth novel, "Carry the One", Carol Anshaw explores the after effects of one night's terrible trauma on three siblings over 25 years. In the early hours of the morning, following a wedding reception, a car filled with stoned, drunk and sleepy guests accidentally hits and kills a girl on a dark country road. For the next twenty-five years, the lives of those involved are subtly shaped by this tragic moment.
Through friendships and love affairs, marriage and divorce, parenthood, addiction, and the modest calamities and triumphs of ordinary days, "Carry the One" shows how one life affects another and how those who thrive and those who self-destruct are closer to each other than we'd expect.
