Booklist Review

Cath Tolland wakes up in a hospital in Florida and has no memory of what led her there. Standing over her is a woman of whom she is vaguely fearful, and memories slowly come back to her. She returns with the woman, Yvonne, who is her sister-in-law, to Connecticut, Derek (her husband), and an isolated life of starting over. Yet her memories return as feelings, and there is an air of uneasiness about the entire household. As Cath regains her strength and memory, terrifying questions emerge: Why does she fear her husband? Why does Yvonne live with the two of them? The answers to these and other questions are disappointingly obvious. The story unfolds as expected, the suspense is momentary, yet Cath's rediscovery of herself and her inner monologues keep the story afloat. --Ellie Barta-Moran
