Elisabet just woke with amnesia. The care offered to her by a husband she doesn't remember descends within weeks into aggression and violence.
Lillian lies hogtied in an underground cell. Forget about escape; unless she can manage the necessities of life she'll be dead within days.
Kristen lost her house, her friends, and her confidence when her parents separated. Now her injured stepmother has moved back in. Has she lost her memory, or lost her mind?
Will the secrets hidden in Elisabet's locked memory be enough to set them all free?
I received this book to give an honest review.
This was a really good thriller. I mean I would have never even guessed the way it all went down.
I would have liked the author to have labeled the chapters when changing characters so it would have been a bit more easier to follow who was in the light during that time. Other than that it was a decent thriller.
Three lives all intertwined by something or someone dark. We go back and forth between Elisabet, Lillian and Kristen's point of view and so we get to see how they are all dealing with things going on around them. Elisabet seems to suffer from amnesia but her step daughter doesn't believe it. So when her Elisabet moves back in with her family you can tell things are a bit tense around the place. Her husband acts very weird and we get to see his true colors and you can't help but feel for Elisabet and her situation. Though I have to say towards the end I figured Elisabet could hold her own there is reason darkness surrounds her.
Now Lillian this gal is fighting to survive even though she believes her being held captive is punishment for something did when she was younger.
Will Lillian survive or die where she is being held, will Elisabet get her memory back and what is going on with Kristen will her and her stepmother reconcile? You just have to read to find out.
All I can say is I didn't think about the ending, ending the way it did though I have to say it was pretty cool. The only thing I wished the author would have told us is how exactly did Elisabet have an accident, I don't think that was ever made clear.
Katherine Hayton is a 42 year old woman who works in insurance, doesn't have children or pets, can't drive, has lived in Christchurch her entire life, and currently resides two minutes walk from where she was born. Fascinating, eh?
She's the author of three spectacular un-bestselling books (unless you count tiny niche genres on Amazon, which of course you should) FOUND NEAR WATER, SKELETAL, and BREATHE AND RELEASE.
She is currently curled up on her couch with her typewriter (laptop) while she tries very hard to give birth to her next novel WHICH EXCITINGLY INCLUDES TIME TRAVEL AT THIS STAGE.
