From the author of How Lucky You Are comes a new novel about love, truth and forgiveness.

Daphne Mitchell has always believed in cause and effect, right and wrong, good and bad. The good: her dream job as a doctor; Owen, her childhood sweetheart and now husband; the beautiful farmhouse they're restoring together. In fact, most of her life has been good–until the day Owen comes home early from work to tell her he's fallen head over heels for someone else.

Unable to hate him, but also equally incapable of moving forward, Daphne's life hangs in limbo until the day Owen's new girlfriend sustains near-fatal injuries in a car accident. As Daphne becomes a pillar of support for the devastated Owen, and realizes that reconciliation may lie within her grasp, she has to find out whether forgiveness is possible and decide which path is the right one for her.


  • "Lewis gets it just right in her examination of how tiny cracks can shatter in a marriage that gets 'cemented in the fable' of what being together is supposed to be."
    Publishers Weekly
  • "Lewis' newest novel is an emotional roller coaster of a read, but in a good way. As fans follow the protagonist's story and journey through one of the hardest moments of her life, they will find themselves feeling every emotion with her along the way - hope, anguish, rage, sadness and love all emerge. It's a testament to Lewis' great writing and is an absolutely fantastic read."
    RT Book Reviews
  • "Kristyn Kusek Lewis defines heartbreak with deep understanding and compassion in Save Me. I swung from hope to rage, and back again as I followed Daphne through the shattering after effects of infidelity. Lewis portrays neither angels nor demons, but the aching reality that marriage can become, along with the possibility of grace that love offers."
    Randy Susan Meyers, author of Accidents of Marriage and The Comfort of Lies
  • "Kristyn Kusek Lewis has written a novel that is as thought-provoking as it is thoughtful. From its heartbreaking beginning to its heartwarming end, SAVE ME had me asking myself, 'What would I do?' over and over - and over again. Absorbing, compelling, and a pleasure to read, this book is a page turner."
    Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Forever, Interrupted and After I Do
  • "In SAVE ME, Kristyn Kusek Lewis takes what might have been a familiar story and puts it on a different trajectory, to a much more compelling end. It's a book that leaves you thinking about the choices the characters made, and whether or not yours would have been the same."
    Sarah Healy, author of Can I Get An Amen? and House of Wonder
  • "Fans of women's fiction about enduring female friendships will relate to debut author Lewis's vivid and genuinely written protagonists. A good choice for readers who enjoy the novels of Kristin Hannah and Patricia Gaffney."
    Library Journal
  • "Kristyn Kusek Lewis's How Lucky You Are is a moving, thoughtful story about what happens when friends become family and stay close despite all odds. It's an honest, empathetic novel of love, commitment, and female friendship with characters I didn't want to let go."
    Meredith Goldstein, author of The Singles and Boston Globe "Love Letters" Columnist
  • "Charming and achingly real. . . I'm certain it will become a book club favorite."
    Sarah Jio, author of The Violets of March and The Bungalow
