Memory Keeper's Daughter: No Going Back

At what point was David’s “point of no return” when he could not fix his lie?

I'd have to say this happened as soon as Norah staged Phoebe's funeral. It's sort of unbelievable (and yet I believed it) that he was surprised by this event -- of COURSE a mother who just lost a child would want a memorial service -- and yet, once that happened, the 'death' was REAL and that was it.

Totally agree with ya there !! Kinda hard to have a way to turn it around after a funeral. I thought it was kinda weird that David was surprised as well , of course a mother who lost a child would want a memorial. I think that David knew that was the point of no return which is why he didn't want to do it in the first place. It made what he did to his family all to real.

I agree that it happened at the funeral. And then when Caroline left town from the funeral, it really was a finality.

I think it was much earlier in the book when he told Norah that they had a stillborn baby. How do you come back from that?
