Answering a call that summons her to a stranger's deathbed, a reluctant Sophie Shepard is too late to hear what he was so anxious to tell her. What was so important that a dying man would think of her in his final moments? With the help of Dr. Drew McCarren, Sophie begins to dig into her past, setting off a chain of events that chills the quiet town of Clearfield, Virginia to its roots.

With part of her wanting nothing more than to put Clearfield behind her and run back home, Sophie knows she won't rest until she discovers the truth. But growing closer to the residents also means uncovering their dark secrets: about the woman who gave her up for adoption, the mysterious part these strangers played, and the life she never knew she nearly had.

Something About Sophie is an unforgettable story about the power of love...and the things people will do, both right and wrong, to protect it.

Customer Reviews of Something About Sophie: A Novel

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Story keeps building up till the end. This was a good story that kept me interested to the last pages. Sophie Shepard is unexpectedly drawn into a story almost three decades old when a stranger invites her to visit him on his death bed. She arrives too late. She's then torn whether to determine what he wanted to tell her, or to let these secrets remain untold. Matters are complicated when she meets Dr. Drew McCarren, with whom she feels an immediate attraction. I enjoyed watching the growth of Sophie's relationships with the various people she met in the small town of Clearfield, Virgina. They seemed to progress in a realistic manner and intensity. Each time I thought I had figured out the mystery, author Mary Kay McComas added a further depth to it. At the onset, I thought it was a simple question of who was Sophie's birth mother. It became a story of small town dynamics and how the actions of a small number continue to ripple outward.
