Description
For ten summers, the extended Seton family met at their country home in New Hampshire to spend a week together playing tennis and badminton and golf, and drinking gin and tonic on the homestead porch to celebrate the end of the season. But during the eleventh summer, everything changes. A hidden, partially loaded hunting rifle winds up in exactly the wrong hands at precisely the wrong time, leading to an inadvertent but terrible accident that tests the values uniting the family and the convictions that might pull it apart. Rich with unforgettable characters and great depth of feeling, BEFORE YOU KNOW KINDNESS also adds a warmly human dimension to some of the most controversial issues of our time.

From the bestselling author of The Flight Attendant, here is a novel that examines wildly divisive American issues like gun control and animal rights with Chris Bohjalian's trademark emotional heft and spellbinding storytelling skill.
For ten summers, the Seton family—all three generations—met at their country home in New England to spend a week together playing tennis, badminton, and golf, and savoring gin and tonics on the wraparound porch to celebrate the end of the season. In the eleventh summer, everything changed. A hunting rifle with a single cartridge left in the chamber wound up in exactly the wrong hands at exactly the wrong time, and led to a nightmarish accident that put to the test the values that unite the family—and the convictions that just may pull it apart.
