In this “tense . . . intriguing game of cat and mouse,” a woman moves to the country to flee a violent past only to encounter familiar danger in her new home. (Publishers Weekly)
A successful artist with a doting husband, Isabel Dryland knows she should be grateful for her happy life. After a violent assault she cannot remember left her shattered and scarred, the lingering effects of her injuries keep her questioning her sanity at times.
Tom, her husband, thinks a move will be the fresh start they need, and has even found the perfect house: a country estate that reminds him of one he admired in his youth. But all Isabel feels inside the house is an overwhelming sense of dread.
Then she learns that beneath the pretty façade of their new home lurk dark secrets powerful enough to bring her own trauma back to the fore. Struggling to determine whether her fear is caused by memory alone, or by present danger, Isabel knows the only way to free herself from her fears is to find closure for the violence in her past. But how do you heal from a past you cannot recall, when only the truth about your past can set you free?
